Electro-pop duo YOUNG GALAXY will drop their latest 3 song EP, ‘Snow Leopard’ (Sept. 28th), and the matrix which we live in, is going bonkers with anticipation. ‘Future’ is the flow of whatever is ‘greater’ in this world of ours, which dilute our sensibilities, juxtaposing the knowledge that ‘more’ is ‘more’.
However, too much of a good thing is the reduction of our core principals. The deviation of such ends, can be easily manipulated, where our existence becomes a caricature unto itself.
YOUNG GALAXY will take an indefinite hiatus after the release of ‘Snow Leopard’. Here’s the band’s statement:
“Young Galaxy has been the singular site of all our creative coordinates since 2006. Generatively, as source, as the conduit for all our content, and as the bloom of each album cycle, it is the flower we have presented to all those who want to listen, see, and appreciate.
YG has had a linear movement until now with Stephen and I as it’s central driving force. And to satisfy our need to change and be challenged, each album bloomed differently than the last with loved and varied people to help present it. But now the two of us see that it is a matter of survival, personally and creatively, that we transform our singular process from its linear movement to multiple processes / branched movements.
Young Galaxy will go on hiatus so that we can go inside, stir it up, and regenerate. There will be many more Ramsay and McCandless blooms but they will have new and varied origins, conduits, and presentations. We both wish to focus on solo work, interdisciplinary collaborations, and ways of presenting content beyond prescribed music industry limitations.
Most of all, we want to thank you, the fans, for your support. To all who have listened, come to our shows and kept in touch, you have truly been the reason we have continued to love doing this and believe in it, through the ups and downs of these past 12 years. Thank you again.”
Love and art is what YOUNG GALAXY is about. And we appreciate that to the fullest.
