We were so excited about finally filming with Run Toto Run, after nearly a year of figuring out a time and place, let alone how the electro trio would translate their sound to an un-plugged session. As it happens, they lugged their synths and drums onto a roof and plugged it right in. Sessions are always better with tinnies and sunshine!
