Canadian dream-poppers Young Galaxy have unveiled “Pretty Boy,” a track from their upcoming fourth album, Ultramarine. For the first time the group left its familiar recording grounds of Montreal and winged it across the Atlantic Ocean to harness the legendary electro-pop powers of Sweden. And boy, did the trip pay off. “Pretty Boy” opens with a staccato, almost hypnotic synth track over steadily moving drum beats. Calming vocals are laid in soft strokes to soothe the million pinpricks of sound scurrying around in the form of keys, drums and violins. The rhythm then climbs, moving forward and sounding bigger in imperceptible steps until somewhere along the line the music is full to bursting. Stream it all below.
Young Galaxy’s Ultramarine drops April 23rd on Paper Bag Records.
