Like all transcendent moments in electronic music, this new video from legends Pet Shop Boys could make us dance and cry at the very same time. "Vocal" is a loving ode and look back to the euphoria of the dance floor, something the electronic duo of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe know a lot about since starting PSB in 1981, and the video is a bittersweet, sepia-toned collection of raw footage from the UK rave scene of the late 1980s. The boys have always been wistful and a bit nostalgic (check out 1990's anthem for lost youth "Being Boring" if you feel like cry-dancing some more), but as we found out when we interviewed them last year, the passing of time is both happy and sad for them, and "Vocal" seems a direct response to that complicated emotion. They'll have a new album out Electric later this summer. (via Towleroad)
