Montreal five-piece Young Galaxy have been making dreamy pop music for a while now, but their hypnotic new single, “Pretty Boy,” in its delicate way, sounds a little more charged for the dance floor. The track is the opener off their upcoming album, Ultramarine, the follow-up to 2011’s Polaris Music Prize-longlisted Shapeshifting. Discussing her vocals on the new album in a press release, YG co-founder Catherine McCandless said, “I can’t act. I can’t fake it.” And “Pretty Boy” is blissful proof.
Ultramarine is out 4/23 via Paper Bag Records.
