Young Galaxy, who recently released their fifth album, Falsework, via Paper Bag Records, have released a bonus track from the album entitled “Were You Ever a Dreamer?”. (Stream it below).
Young Galaxy’s upcoming live shows will include a music-triggered light show designed by Adam Hummell, who recently contributed to productions such as Madonna’s Super Bowl Halftime performance and MDNA tour, Cirque Du Soleil, Miley Cyrus’ Bangrz Tour. The band says, “We believe we have developed a live show that will raise the bar and challenge people’s expectations of small club shows.” You can get more of a feel for what audiences have in store for them by watching their tour trailer below.

Young Galaxy released Falsework world-wide on Paper Bag Records and Plancha (Japan) on October 30th. The album is the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize short-listed Ultramarine. Order the CD and vinyl here.
The winter of 2014/2015 took Young Galaxy from their studio in Montreal to Gothenburg and back. Falsework completes the sound they have been mining on their past two albums Shapeshifting (2011) and Ultramarine (2013) with producer Dan Lissvik. 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.
