There’s a place in Calgary, the Gem of the New West out on the Canadian prairies in the shadow of the illustrious Rockies. A street lit by the glow of neon lights. Wet pavement. The muted sounds of subwoofers coming from venues along the strip. During the ‘80s, 11th Avenue was Calgary’s nightlife hotspot. It’s where the nighthawks went to smoke cigarettes, listen to music, and to share drinks and subtle whispers with strangers in the dark. After the sun went down, on hot summer night or during early winter evenings when frost encrusted the concrete, strangers and friends alike met to experience a beautiful afterglow after solemn sunsets in a city left behind by the rest of the world.
After the oil bust, 11th Avenue lost its luster. The nightlife was vanquished. The strangers disappeared into the shadows. The subwoofers were silenced. The neon signs were extinguished. And life moved on.
But 11th Avenue is slowly returning to its previous glory. It is known as Electric Avenue. And the sixth full-length studio record from Moonrunner83 pays homage to its story, its loneliness, and its power.
It's our story. Yours. Mine. Ours. The story of a city forgotten. A city crumbling. A city rebuilt. The epicenter of a magical and musical eventide. Its the electricity runs in our veins.

Imagine if ABBA and VNV NATION did a collab track in the 90's...
Well, that's how "Knowing Me, Knowing You" might have sounded like!
It's Kay's most personal song and it was a very difficult process. It took months to produce this track together with Sami! "When I first listened to the final version of MEMORIES, I literally was dancing to it with tears in my eyes." And MEMORIES is very danceable! A breakup is never easy, but Kay's intention was NOT to compose a heartbreaking ballad about it. And although this track has a very sentimental undertone, it's still powerful and energetic with a touch of trance and a glimpse of hope!
