Nearly fell off my seat!
It’s been awhile since Young Galaxy has dropped anything besides the rework of Come of See and Stay For Real back in March.
They are back with a new single called Elusive Dream!
Montreal’s Young Galaxy return with a song for our times, an intimate commentary on current social and political landscapes. The song marks the return of the band to its original duo of Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay, and features long time collaborator Dan Lissvik’s return to production duties. This is the band’s second independently released track this year.
The band’s thoughts on the new song and how it relates to the world’s current state of affairs: Elusive Dream was written this summer during this ongoing period of social and political tension in the world. The song addresses the fact that we feel human existence is the craziest, most psychedelic thing there is, and yet it feels like we’re prone to squandering it all. We are hopeful, ready to fight for our beliefs and on behalf of those who have trouble fighting for themselves. Sometimes however, we just want to take a moment to reflect, to feel the wonder and the sadness of it all at the same time. This song is about those feelings.
