Popping culture: Pet Shop Boys revisit acid-house heydays in new video

The Pet Shop Boys must be feeling a bit nostalgic.

Priming audiences for Electric, their latest album, which drops in mid-July, PSB started off by going back in time and revisiting the hard-edged flourishes and synths of Hi-NRG in "Axis,” released last month

Now it seems that — visually speaking, at least — the duo has fast forwarded into the halcyon days of the UK acid-house scene, with “Vocal,” a love song to that time. Directed by Joost Vandebrug, the video uses archival footage from outdoor raves, parties and even the famed Hacienda, giving viewers a sense of nostalgia for a time and a place they may not have even experienced.
