Montreal-based dreampop trio, Young Galaxy, made a heartbreak theme music video “Crying My Heart Out” with a purple drag queen and Virgin Mary (who can’t beat that?) two years ago – since we’ll be seeing them in two months, we are throwing back this pre-gig appetizer.

“Crying My Heart Out” is from their album Ultramarine, which was released back in April 2013. Watching the purple majesty in an oversized gown with a tiara on her à-la-granny perm made us reminisce that era of cropped pants and the rise of faux mustache epidemic (still ongoing). Yup, those were the two of the three noteworthy events of 2013, the third one being this video. While fashion changes (for the better or meh), Young Galaxy’s penchant for sharing eccentric videos and launching us into a floaty trance still persists. The three recently debuted their album, Falsework, in October this year and will kick off touring next year – if you live in LA, see you at Echoplex!
