Young Galaxy – Stay for Real

Young Galaxy have a serious knack for evolving their sound in pleasantly unexpected directions. Their latest offering, “Stay for Real,” is a deliciously dark call to arms in trying political times, urging us to never let get of our self-truths amid all the turbulence. The track strikes a razor-sharp balance between tension and faith, with an array of subdued arpeggios bubbling up below the surface to envelop Catherine McCandless’ crisp, celestial vocals. It’s music for the future — quite literally, since all proceeds from the self-released single go to Pivot Legal Society (Canada), ACLU (USA), and W.A.V.E. (EU).

“Stay for Real” is available for purchase on Bandcamp.

Young Galaxy – Were You Ever A Dreamer?

Young Galaxy quietly released one of the best singles of their career last week, a bonus track from their excellent 2015 release Falsework. The Montreal trio are in fine electro-disco form on “Were You Ever a Dreamer?”, which has a deep, soulful swing. It’s a slow, smooth synth-pop swaggerer of the highest order.

Young Galaxy are on tour right now. And Falsework is available from Paper Bag Records.
