Video: Syntext – Runaway (Trans-themed)

This morning on EILE‘s music slot, we are delighted to feature Syntext, a band with a message for trans people, and everyone else as well! Syntext is a musical duo, consisting of Charlie MacCall and Alex Long, currently based in New York.Their song, Runaway, and music video, shows a trans person of colour being bullied by her own family, and being supported by strangers when she tries to run away. And apart from the powerful message, the 80s/soft electro-jazz style music is great too! Have a listen, and come back for more from Syntext.


The Runaway – Aryah Lester, The Mother – Carol McLean-Long, The Brother – Adrian Harewood

Production – NuView Productions –
