CloudKid Presents Crypto - Running Up That Hill (with L8NCY)
Crypto reports back to planet Earth with a new track they discovered while they were living in an 80s haze after binging the entirety of Stranger Things last month. You guessed it — it’s their rendition of “RUNNING UP THAT HILL” by British producer and singer-songwriter, Kate Bush. On this version however, we hear an electronic twist, with support by vocalist Chandler Leighton’s electronic/dance side project, L8NCY.
Crypto says, “I wanted to make an epic rendition of the song because it’s been going around for a few weeks now and has inspired so many people, including L8NCY and me. It’s intense like the original, but in a different way. Grandiose, dancey, exciting, villain-esque. That’s the vibe I was going for and what I felt like when watching the show and when that song was playing in the background during Max’s epic scene. I hope it’s sounds like the modern-day version that would offset or accompany the original if it had originally come out here and now.”

Inspired by the universe-renowned music scene on planet Earth, Crypto decided to embark on a hell of a musical journey, leaving their home planet to write and release music for mere humans. Released on CloudKid, Crypto thought it would be the perfect label to help them explore a whole new world. Giving full freedom of expression and encouragement to be themselves, Crypto is now able to explore their creativity without limits and show us humans where their outer-worldly music skills — and taste, plus epic collaborations — can take them next. On this one, Crypto traveled back to the 80s and was inspired by Kate Bush so much that when he came back, he went on to create this version of ‘RUNNING UP THAT HILL,‘ with L8NCY! Out now!
