Pell – “Runaway (Remix)” (Video)

blame it on Shake April 14, 2015

New Orleans’ native Pell is back on our pages with an animated visual for the remix to his Floating While Dreaming standout, “Runaway.”

Produced by LARRY BRRD and featuring M83 and White Sea’s Morgan Kibby, the updated version of “Runaway” transforms the soulful original – produced by Tomas Barfod & Jeppe Kjellberg – into a striking pop record that’s sure to land on radio waves soon enough (if it’s not already).

The animated video follows the lyrical theme of growing up in a house divided by telling the story of a broken home, and the toll it can take on the youth involved. “I wanted to create a video that illustrated the most sacred union being broken, and I think we accomplished that,” says Pell, “I’m very inspired by cartoons, and Aaron was able to turn my vision and story into a masterpiece with his animation.”

Press play on the video – animated by Aaron Keuter – above. Also, those in NYC, Chicago and the UK can catch the rising star on his upcoming tour dates…
