Published May 30, 2019Four years removed from making their debut with Innerworld, Electric Youth have shared the details behind a follow-up effort.
The Toronto duo will release a new album titled Memory Emotion through Watts Arcade Inc./Last Gang on August 9.
Said to be "the yang to the ying" of their aforementioned debut, Memory Emotion is described by the group's Austin Garrick as "much more outer-world, an album focused on the external world we live in and the way in which we interact with the world as a result of the emotions attached to our memories."
Alongside the announcement, the duo have shared first single "The Life," which comes accompanied by a Chris Muir-directed video.
Garrick expanded on the single's relation to the album title in a statement as follows:
Innerworld was finding that sense of self, developing and establishing a viewpoint, and Memory Emotion is us taking that viewpoint with us out into the world. "The Life" encapsulates the spectrum of that experience, from the dark to the light, the birth and rebirth, the destruction, degeneration and regeneration of living things on our planet, the home to all greedy megalomaniacs and generous martyrs alike. There really is a strong link between music and memory and emotion, and Memory Emotion is what we came up with for that link.
