Ultramarine is the name and colour of Young Galaxy's fourth LP, the first album they have made away from Montreal, across the sea, all together. Like 2011's Shapeshifting, Ultramarine was made with electronic producer Dan Lissvik (Studio); but this time it was made in Gothenburg, Sweden, at Lissvik's studio; this time five musicians stood in a room with Lissvik, playing their instruments; this time every song was sung by co-founder Catherine McCandless. Ultramarine will be released worldwide by Paper Bag Records on April 23rd.
Ultramarine is ten tracks of shining, glimmering electronic pop - songs that scatter across the dancefloor, swim through headphones, ringing out like a cold new summer. A modern record, beautifully now, and in a way more direct than anything Young Galaxy have ever made. This band has always loved pop music; here they lean into this love, finding lyrics that speak more to the beat than to intimate autobiography.
