Take a slow ride with “Runaway”, a synth-pop tune from Toronto’s Electric Youth, the ’80s-obsessed duo of Bronwyn Griffin and Austin Garrick, best known for their much-loved track “A Real Hero”, a collaboration with Parisian producer College, from the Drive soundtrack. The pair’s new single “Runaway” that has a decidedly retro vibe is lifted from their forthcoming debut album, “Innerworld”, which will arrive on September 30 through Last Gang Records/Secretly Canadian. You can pre-order your copy here.

Update: You can watch the video for “Runaway”, which was directed by Noel Paul. Filmed in Beirut, Lebanon, the video follows an increasingly tense day in the life of Saro and Khodor.

Oslo producer Pelifics, aka Eirik Seu Stokkmo, dropped today his new three-track EP “Lifetime Vol. 1″ on Brilliantine, which combines his love for disco and house sounds, with a strong homage to 1980’s pop and funk. The lead track of the release is the ethereal and beautiful “Wish It Could Last”, a collaboration with Toronto’s Drive Soundtrack darlings Electric Youth. It sounds so good. The EP also includes the track “Can’t Promise Anything”, featuring Human Life, and “Magic”. In his own words: “The track “Magic” started off as a homage to one of my all time favourite tracks “Nothing Looks the Same in the Light” from Wham!’s album Fantastic”. “Lifetime Pt. 2″ is due for release on March 26th.
