Stream Young Galaxy’s ‘Under My Wing’ for Free

After releasing albums for Arts & Crafts and Paper Bag Records, Montreal’s Young Galaxy will release their latest effort Down Time independently on April 6.

To celebrate, they have shared a free stream of ‘Under My Wing’.

“It’s a song that sleeps during the day and walks the empty streets at night. It’s about the failure of capitalism, the isolation of suburbia, and the drive to discover sensuality, connection, and a spark of life in the face of despair,” the band said in a statement.

“Beginning to write and record is always a question of seeking the headspace that will manifest the life that we want to live – it feels essential that we get up against what feels most valuable to us: love, art, subversion, risk and vulnerability,” singer Catherine McCandless said in a press release. “Those are the tools of the work of writing for us. In immersing ourselves in a kind of daily labour that brings about questions of whether we’ve gone far enough, left out enough, left bare enough, said too much, sweated enough, bled enough, I think we are putting out into the world powers and vulnerabilities that could be the balm, or even antidote to it. The music industry needs it, politics need it, people need it. It’s love and sex and comfort and blood and unity amongst seekers on the outside of what seems to be an absurd and lonely state of normalcy currently.”

Young Galaxy also announced the dates of their spring tour;

April 4 – Vancouver, BC at Venue
