DOWNLOAD: Young Galaxy - Queen Drum + Henning Fürst of The Tough Alliance Remix
Canada’s Young Galaxy have had a big year—handpicked as openers for Arcade Fire, supporting Stars and Cymbals Eat Guitar, and nominated for the Polaris Music Prize. Still, we’re most impressed with the band crediting “crying while dancing” as the inspiration for their sophomore effort Invisible Republic. We’ve been doing this in our room for years, and now it’s officially okay to take it outside! Below, get sniffy with the psych-stunner “Queen Drum” and a hazy, understated refit via Henning Fürst of The Tough Alliance. The new record is as gleaming and gorgeous as we’d hoped, and drops July 27 on Paper Bag Records.
