Montreal duo Young Galaxy has returned with a song for our times, an intimate commentary on current social, political and personal landscapes. “Elusive Dream” was independently released last Friday via Gorilla Vs Bear. The song marks the return of the band to its original duo of Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay and features long time collaborator Dan Lissvik’s return to production duties.
On the new song, Ramsay says, “‘Elusive Dream’ was written this summer during this ongoing period of social and political tension in the world. The song addresses the fact that we feel human existence is the craziest, the most psychedelic thing there is, and yet it feels like we’re prone to squandering it all. We are hopeful, ready to fight for our beliefs and on behalf of those who have trouble fighting for themselves. Sometimes, however, we just want to take a moment to reflect, to feel the wonder and the sadness of it all at the same time. This song is about those feelings.”
The band established its independence earlier this year with the single “Stay For Real”, and continue with “Elusive Dream”. They are giving the world new music that not only reflects a distillation of all their previous work, but that marks fresh, new musical territory as well.
