Young Galaxy have revealed the first single from their new Dan Lissvik-produced album, “Ultramarine”. Listen to Pretty Boy below via Soundcloud which will be available digitally from February 5th via Paper Bag Records with a remix of the track from Peaking Lights.
Young Galaxy have announced details of their fourth LP, “Ultramarine”, which will be released via Paper Bag Records on April 23rd. The album was made with electronic producer Dan Lissvik in Gothenburg, Sweden, at Lissvik’s studio which was very different from the recording of 2011′s Shapeshifting; this time the band stood in a room with Lissvik, playing their instruments and every song was sung by co-founder Catherine McCandless. Watch a teaser for the album below via YouTube.
“In being away from home we felt like we could risk more,” McCandless says. “Take bigger chances. Things we didn’t think would work, we tried anyway.”
According to the label, “Ultramarine” is more direct than previous Young Galaxy records have been, with songs of azure longing, Young Galaxy haven’t lost their other aspect: a willfulness, a purposeful independence, and a sense of darkness, unilluminated. As lighthearted as “Ultramarine” can be – as much as you can dance to it – there is also something elemental, something underneath.
