YOUNG GALAXY, "Stay For Real," 2017

Posted on March 15, 2017

Montreal electro-indie rockers Young Galaxy hand out a lyrical warning on their newest single "Stay For Real." Backed by a firm mid-period Depeche Mode beat, singer Catherine McCandless repeats "Everything's changing/But we've got to stay for real." Nobody will question the band's "realness" considering they've teamed up with the Arcade Fire-connected Plus One organization to donate proceeds from the song to defending marginalized peoples through rights organizations Pivot Legal Society (Canada), American Civil Liberties Union (USA), and Women Against Violence Europe (EU).
