Presumably named after a Debbie Gibson single, Canadian duo Electric Youth have effortlessly captured the essence of 80s nostalgia in their soft synth-laden pop music.¬† From the reverb-saturated drum machines to Bronwyn Griffin’s nebulous vocal delivery, if there was an algorithm to follow for this stuff, Electric Youth is the band.¬† And perhaps it’s this potential for pigeon holes that the band is attempting a stylistic transformation for album #3.¬† Titled Memory Emotion, expect the sound you fell in love with, but expanded into a vastly new array of sounds, moods and tempos.¬† Self-produced but fully-realized, expect this to be a big step for the band.

Electric Youth‚Äôs self-produced Memory Emotion is the yang to the ying of their acclaimed debut: whereas Innerworld had an inward focus and the immersive atmospherics of a headphones album, the new LP looks outward, exploring a wider spectrum of sounds, moods and tempos, resulting in their most dynamic body of work yet.
