It’s been a true pleasure seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor have another hit album in the UK with Wanderlust, as previous efforts like Make A Scene and Trip The Light Fantastic were woefully overlooked by the music-buying public at large. And the charming, string-laden “Runaway Daydreamer” makes for an excellent choice for follow-up single to slow ballad “Young Blood.”
The “Runaway Daydreamer” video, however, doesn’t offer much more than what we already saw in the Wanderlust trailer clip last fall. In fact, some of the camera work, particularly during the final minute, seems a bit jarring and amateurish — though whether that’s on purpose or not is anyone’s guess.
Still, Sophie looks absolutely stunning here, and staring at her practically flawless features while she poses, pouts and smiles, occasional odd camera adjustments aside, ultimately makes for four minutes well spent.
