Berlin-based electro trio, Moderat, takes us into the worst case scenario for a pilot in their video “Running” – landing in the middle of a dessert near Buttfuck town where you can’t fly out. The video is an existential/heat struggle where we watch the pilot dude roam around, drink a beer, and get super desperate (how we all feel deep deep inside every weekday). Metaphorically it could refer to a situation where you feel stuck, but the only way out is to keep running:

“Running” is what you’ll probably list under your “Work Jam” or “Get Shit Done” playlist – it’s motoric electro beats alongside the piercingly pleasant chants “Keep running” yield the perfect formula for an energy banger. “Running” is from Moderat’s third album III, released back in March.
