Hint of Synth
Formed in Vancouver and based in Montreal, YOUNG GALAXY is one of the few indie pop acts out there who’ve been able to make every release sound as fresh as their debut. Their latest disc, Falsework, is reminiscent of various experimental compositions created by ’70s and ’80s electro-geniuses such as Arthur Russell and Giorgio Moroder. Much like Young Galaxy’s latest single, “Body,” the album fuses dreamy choruses with cool synthesized sounds that lull and energize the listener into lyrics that explore both luxury and heartache. —E.I.
