Stephen Ramsay and Catherine McCandless are Young Galaxy. They stem from island roots, from Canada’s Western frontier, that place of rising tides, beach side campfires and fogged-in cedars. Through that summer of 2005 and the spring of 2006 they recorded with appearances and contributions of friends at Jace Lasek’s Breakglass Studio. Their sound has been described as similar to the bands Slowdive, Galaxie 500 and Luna as well as Pink Floyd and Spiritualized.
Shifting from the atmospheric electronica-infused indie pop to a more ambitious brand of ’80s-influenced sophisti-pop, they’ve recently released their third album, Shapeshifting, produced by Dan Lissvik of the band Studio in Gothenburg, Sweden, and is described as a massive change in direction creatively, and one that I personally love. Check out the track of the day titled Cover Your Tracks. Fans of Fever Ray and Kmife will love this new sound of theirs.
