Pet Shop Boys 'Vocal' video

The Pet Shop Boys today debuted the video for Electric single “Vocal,” and it’s a bit of a time warp: The Joost Vandeburg-directed clip which you can see below is comprised of “authentic amateur film footage shot at various raves in the late ’80s” as well as images from the renowned New Order-owned Hacienda club in Manchester.

The band notes:

The video (and the song) was inspired by the way British youth at this time found its own freedom with a new culture epitomised by dance music and raves: “It’s in the music/It’s in the song/And the feeling of the warmth around us all is so strong.”

The single is now available on iTunes, and the full album will be released July 15.
