Young Galaxy

Ex-Stars touring guitarist Stephen Ramsay founded space rock outfit Young Galaxy with girlfriend Catherine McCandless. The two got started in Vancouver and relocated to Montreal to live and record. They were brought on board Stars' label, Arts & Crafts, and released an EP and limited-edition 7". With a live lineup in place, Young Galaxy toured with the Dears in fall 2006. In April 2007 the band presented a self-titled debut album featuring contributions from the Dears, the Besnard Lakes, Stars, Patrick Watson, and A Silver Mt. Zion. In 2009 they delivered the sophomore album Invisible Republic on Fontana North. It was released the following year on Paper Bag Records and garnered a 2010 Polaris Music Prize nomination. Young Galaxy followed up with 2011's Shapeshifting, featuring production by Dan Lissvik of the Swedish band Studio. Two years later, they released their fourth studio album, Ultramarine. In 2015, Young Galaxy returned with their fifth album and third with producer Lissvik, the atmospheric and synthy Falsework. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
