MP3 (and More!) of the Day #273: Run Toto Run

By on Thursday, 16th December 2010 at 10:00 am

I’ve always got my ear out for new electrobands. While Run Toto Run have been on the Manchester scene for a while and previously made quite a splash with their xylophone-containing cover of Passion Pit‘s ‘Sleepyhead’ (watch video here), this was my first real introduction to them: a song called ‘This is a Lull’, which you can listen to and download below. What I find great about this song is the contrast between the mad electronic beats and singer/songwriter Rachael Kichenside’s angelic vocals.

The promo video for the song, also below, reminds me of those low-budget videos I loved from the ’80s. You know what I just realised? The green screen animation reminds me of the Jonsi gig Mary Beth and I went to last month – birds flying in the background, the sky changing colour, etc. It’s trippy and maybe a bit too trippy but the tune, but aren’t electronica music videos trippy to begin with anyway? (Also, can I say I adore Rachael’s feathered outfit in this video and think it’s stunning?)
