Jessie and The Toy Boys are back with a brand new video for their DJ Skeet Skeet produced track, ‘Runaway’. The video was inspired by the recent overturning of Proposition 8 in California, which is an extension of the song’s theme of pressure in society to be something that we’re not.
Jessie Malakouti, who tackles the issue of gay marriage from an inside perspective in the video, says, “The song is ultimately about breaking free and following your heart. I wanted to make a music video that told a similar story in relation to gay marriage. I was honored to have the beautiful and brave Mollie Thomas star in my video, and I hope that together we are able to bring about more awareness to an issue that is near and dear to both of our hearts and spread a message of equality.”
Jessie and the Toy Boys will be releasing their debut album ‘This Is How Rumors Start’ later this year. For now, download the track ‘Runaway’ for free here.
