Electric Youth – “Innocence” (Stereogum Premiere)

Electric Youth are best known for their collaboration with College “A Real Hero,” which, if you’ve seen Drive, you’re probably humming to yourself right now. It was an incredible song, simple and direct, and captured a sort of romanticism that is really hard to pull off with a straight face. Now the Canadian band have “Innocence,” the first single for an upcoming and currently unnamed album that’s coming next year. Austin Garrick’s production here isn’t overly flashy, enhancing rather than distracted from Bronwyn Griffin’s neon-lit vocals. Listen below.

The album is out next year via Last Gang Records.
