ELECTRIC YOUTH

In a click-bait driven music scene, it's rare to find an album that stands the test of time, but Toronto-based synth duo Electric Youth may have managed that rare feat with their spectral, stunning debut album Innerworld. "We wanted to make something that had the sense of being timeless," says Austin Garrick, the band's instrumentalist alongside vocalist Bronwyn Griffin. " Our ultimate goal is to make a record that will be the favourite album of people that aren't born yet."

The new album came together between the duo’s home studio in Los Angeles, where all the vocals were laid down, and their Toronto studio, where Austin’s vintage synth collection was used to assemble more than have of the beautiful analog sounds on the new record. In LA, the band constantly projected old films while recording, all having influences on different songs from the release. Heavenly Creatures by Peter Jackson inspired “Runaway” directly while other films like Metropolis, City of God, After Hours, and Videodrome had profound effects on the environment and feel of the album.

Secretly Canadian is thrilled to welcome Electric Youth to the family. Based out of Toronto, the electronic pop duo includes Austin Garrick and Bronwyn Griffin.
