Fall Preview: Young Galaxy

While it's only June, the languid summer days will be gone before we know it, and it's time to start looking ahead (and forward) to fall shows. One of these is Young Galaxy, a dreamy electro-pop outfit from Montreal. Originally formed in 2005 by singer/guitarist Stephen Ramsay and singer/keyboardist Catherine McCandless, Young Galaxy has grown to include members Stephen Kamp, Matthew Shapiro, and Andrea Silver. Young GalaxyThe band's fourth album, Ultramarine, was released on Paper Bag Records in April, and features their trademark shimmering synths and floating vocals. Young Galaxy's music is distinguished from typical electro-pop, however, by its dark complexity. Its deeper layer is readily apparent in the new video for their song "New Summer," which shows buildings crumbling and streets exploding as McCandless sings, "Here it comes again, the beautiful, warm weather." The nuances in Young Galaxy's work, combined with its appealing electronic sound, allow the band to shine everywhere from the dance floor to quiet summer nights, and they should not be missed at Gardner in October. Also check out their video for "Pretty Boy," from Ultramarine. Event information: Young Galaxy, w/opener TBA Wed, 10/9/13 Gardner, 9pm All Ages/Open to the public
