Lust For Youth – Running

I don’t often think that a song is perfect. But Lust For Youth‘s new track Running is pushing on it. Layers of shadow and light glide over one another with relentless and heartfelt speed, sweeping along flawlessly. The Copenhagen trio have just released this video from Running, a standout track from the album International (Sacred Bones), to announce their European tour this autumn. Upon first listen it sounds like the kind of tune that would soundtrack Lost In Translation well, and then you realise that the self shot footage was filmed on location in Tokyo. Although undeniably electronic, there Norrvide, Fischer and Rahbek know the importance of a pop hook, even among such sparse production. Skeletal but certainly not emaciated, it flickers with abstract beats and the sound of esoteric wandering, a mind fallen between the cracks as the body races around trying to make sense of the world. If I have musical thing, this isn’t usually it. But I love it.
