In the seven years since their last full length release, MSTRKRFT have had plenty of time to build anticipation for their next effort. When the Canadian duo announced back in May that a new studio record was on the way in the form of Operator, fans were naturally excited to see the blog house mainstays preparing for a comeback. With just a handful of releases since 2009’s Fist Of God, the time is right for new material from the esteemed electronic group.
Earlier today, MSTRKRFT released a new music video, giving fans their third taste of the forthcoming Operator album with “Runaway.” The music video features a simple concept, as a sleepwalking man dances to the beat of the song. Sonically, “Runaway” is an upbeat electro-cut with grinding distorted synths, infectious rhythms, and catchy vocal hooks.
The track feels like a breathe of fresh air in today’s overcrowded electronic music scene, and fans will no doubt be excited to enjoy some new MSTRKRFT before Operator is released on July 22.
