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.
The Snow Leopard E.P. is material taken from this year’s Down Time album sessions, and is the band’s final instalment of material for the foreseeable future. Themes range from a desire to change or disappear, love in the face of adversity, and anxiety about what the future will hold.
Hotel Sport, Future’s video director describes the video as one that “depicts an endless wave of information, a glimpse into the future where everything is hyper-connected and meaningless. The song’s topic of anxiety and time was well suited to a barrage of disconnected images, something both visually seductive and absurd.”
