Electric Youth

Innocence

 

 

Drive‘s “A Real Hero”: that’s where you recognize Bronwyn Griffin’s ethereal voice from. And while we’re at it, 1988: that’s where you recognize Austin Garrick’s hair-poofing, laser shooting synth. More than two years after the release and success of Toronto/Hamilton-based Electric Youth’s collaboration with College, the Canadian couple has finally released their first single to an unnamed upcoming LP set to debut next year. I can’t quite denote why, but somewhere in the fusion of Griffin’s almost monotone vocals and way too relatable lyrics, “Innocence”  come out being one of those ‘what the fuck am I doing with my life’ kind of songs. It’s definitely not a feel good tune, but it’s not a sad song either. It just feels real. Give it a listen and experience the allure of Electric Youth for yourself, and don’t worry, you’re on the right track,
