The winter of 2014/2015 took Young Galaxy from their studio in Montreal to Gothenburg and back.  The band’s brilliant new full length Falsework completes the sound they have been mining on their past two albums Shapeshifting (2011) and Ultramarine (2013). The album is undeniably synth pop without the simplicity and was informed and inspired by 80’s electro, acid house and r&b, music that was well ahead of its time.  Falsework was made using machines from the past to sound like music from the future.

Falsework is the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize short-listed Ultramarine and their third album produced by Dan Lissvik (Studio, Atelje). Of the record, Stereogum have noted, “Young Galaxy may have a little problem on their hands: They’re just too consistently good! For their past few albums – and on their upcoming one, Falsework – the Montreal band trades in the same kind of spotless, slinking R&B, and they’re super good at what they do. “

All Music go on to note, “Musically and lyrically, Falsework is rife with thematic ideas exploring the dichotomous nature of how humans interact with machines, and vice-versa. As McCandless sings on “Body,” “Will you still want me if I’m just a body?” Thankfully, on FalseworkYoung Galaxy have made a body of work that is as thoughtfully passionate and lyrical as it is mechanically perfect.”
Young Galaxy is a Canadian indie pop/dream pop band formed in 2006 in Montreal. Through the 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. The band has toured in Canada, The United States and Europe, opening for Arcade Fire, Peter Bjorn and John, Stars and Death Cab For Cutie.
