Biography

Electric Youth is a canadian duo based in Toronto, formed by Austin Garrick and Bronwyn Griffin. They grew up together and started producing demos emulating 80’s synthpop tunes. They appeared on the well-known compilation “Valerie and Friends” and also were featured on the debut albums of Grum and College.

After cracking the Top 10 of the iTunes dance charts in 15 countries with the release, “A Real Hero”, featured on Nicolas Winding Refn’s hit film ‘Drive,’ the Toronto-based electronic pop duo Electric Youth stepped back to take time to work on a full-length album. Since then, the duo signed to Secretly Canadian and “A Real Hero” has gained over 18 million plays on YouTube. Austin Garrick, the band’s instrumentalist, alongside vocalist Bronwyn Griffin, says of working on their debut, ‘Innerworld’ (out Sept. 30), “We wanted to make something that had the sense of being timeless. Our ultimate goal is to make a record that will be the favorite album of people that aren’t born yet.”

Recording took place between the duo’s Toronto studio and their home studio in LA. Each space served its different purpose - in Toronto Austin was able deploy his extensive vintage synth collection, making up what he estimates is 80% of analog sounds on the album. In LA, the pair recorded Bronwyn’s vocals, of which they share writing duties for — in their space— which includes a film projection room. Fritz Lang’s boundary-breaking twenties classic ‘Metropolis,’ among other films played throughout the making of the record, inspired the eleven original tracks of ‘Innerworld.
