Imperial Teen Throw a Cross-Dressing Party for ‘Runaway’ Video

Indie-pop legends return for goofy fun with masks and stop-motion

By: christopherschultz // January 31, 2012

Eternally joyous indie-pop savants Imperial Teen have once again returned and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve already dubbed their monster fifth album, Feel the Sound, a SPIN Essential; we let you stream the whole fuggin’ thing ; and now we bring you a swell new music video. Sadly, the “Runaway” video doesn’t feature the return of collaborator Rose McGowan (from their classic “Yoo Hoo”), but director Andrew G. Mueller imagined some fun Imperial Teen masks and suggests some cross-dressing shenanigans for your next cupcake party.

Can’t believe we agreed to post this without asking Merge for a Roddy mask! Boo!
