The Playlist: Young Galaxy

What better way is there to bring warmth into these chilly dark evenings than revisiting something a bit summery? I reviewed Young Galaxy's latest album Ultramarine back in April and that is what I have picked up again recently.

Filled with dreamy riffs and gorgeous descriptions of summer days, love and sleepwalking, every track has great energy and irresistible appeal. And upon regular listening I have discovered hidden gems, not least the concluding section of In Fire, emotive and beautiful as it is, appearing rather unexpectedly when the song seems ready to end.

Another Young Galaxy album I love is Shapeshifting. It includes the ethereal For Dear Life and the brilliantly uplifting We Have Everything. Brilliant dream pop.
