Montreal duo Young Galaxy – Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay – address today’s social and political climate in their new single “Elusive Dream.” Built on a slow-burning downtempo, the track has a smoky soundscape with tints of R&B where the vocals of Catherine raise an intense reflection. Stream below:

“‘Elusive Dream’ was written this summer during this ongoing period of social and political tension in the world. The song addresses the fact that we feel human existence is the craziest, most psychedelic thing there is, and yet it feels like we’re prone to squandering it all. We are hopeful, ready to fight for our beliefs and on behalf of those who have trouble fighting for themselves. Sometimes however, we just want to take a moment to reflect, to feel the wonder and the sadness of it all at the same time. This song is about those feelings.” explained Ramsay.

“Elusive Dream” is the follow up of their earlier single “Stay For Real,” which was released back in March of this year
