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.
