Young Galaxy have released their new single Stay for Real. It’s a beautiful fusion of dreamy electronic pop with a powerful statement on how we must stay true to ourselves in these troubled times. This single marks a change for the Montreal band as they are releasing the single independently.
On the new single the band says, “We can no longer stand idly by and rely only on the people who shape the world for us culturally and politically. We must stay true to ourselves and feel the courage of our convictions in the face of polarizing political and personal views. But most of all, we must show empathy, compassion and love – even when faced with increasing existential threats, and fear and hostility. This song is a statement of intent, as we enter a new era, to hopefully serve as a reminder to ourselves of what our responsibilities are as artists in this troubled time.”
By moving forward independently, Young Galaxy note that their personal and creative choices are inherently political. In light of this, Young Galaxy is proud to be able to partner with Plus1 so all net proceeds from the sale of the song go to defending the rights of the marginalized through PIVOT (Canada), ACLU (USA), and W.A.V.E (EU).
