Young Galaxy - Pretty Boy


In what is one of the hottest things I've heard this year, Young Galaxy have captivated me with their particular brand of synth. The drums are amazing, the progression of the chords through the track are compelling and never once do you get the feeling that Catherine's vocals are misplaced. She is right where she needs to be and she commands respect from that place.  Everyone in the blog universe are falling head over heels for this track and with good reason.  It's a brilliant piece of artistry and it's got the potential to push them into the American mainstream.  That's probably not a goal of this group from Montreal but nevertheless, it's a brilliant track.  They have an album coming out in April so as it gets closer, I'll keep you informed.
