Woodkid - Run Boy Run


Born in Lyon, France; Yoann Lemoine has directed videos for some of the biggest names in the industry and now he's turned his passion for music into his own career where he has the power and ability to create his own brand of art. Coming this fall will be his debut album, The Golden Age and this track, "Run Boy Run" will be the lead single. His is billed as an indie artist and I think that is a broad enough genre to encapsulate what he does. The visuals in this are a bit, Where the Wild Things Are meets the Battle for Minas Tirith. The pulsing rhythmic beat and the rapid fire lyrics drive this song forward and if you aren't careful... you will be dragged along with it. It's a super cool sound and I can't wait until the album releases.
