Electric Youth have announced a new album, Memory Emotion, and shared its first single, “The Life,” via a video for the track. Memory Emotion is the duo’s first new album in five years and is due out August 9 via Watts Arcade Inc./Last Gang. Watch “The Life” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The Toronto-based duo (vocalist Bronwyn Griffin and multi-instrumentalist Austin Garrick) first garnered attention due to their song “A Real Hero” being featured prominently in the 2011 film Drive (directed by Nicolas Winding Refn). Their debut album, Innerworld, arrived in 2014. Since then they have kept busy working on more soundtrack work with Winding Refn and other collaborations. The band self-produced Memory Emotion. Chris Muir directed the video for “The Life.”

Garrick had this to say about the album in a press release: “Memory Emotion is 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. 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.”

Memory Emotion Tracklist:

1. The Life
3. Breathless
4. Real Ones
5. On My Own
6. Higher
7. thirteen
8. Evergreen 143
9. Now Now
10. Through the same eyes
11. Memory Emotion (Outro)
