Young Galaxy – Ultramarine [Review]

Young Galaxy‘s fourth album dropped on April 23, 2013.
I’ve been a fan of their music since they released Invisible Republic back in 2009.
It wasn’t until 2011 they released Shapeshifting when they changed a direction in their music.
Still going through with the electronic and synthpop route.
I doubt they will read this review but I hope they will like what I have to say about Ultramarine.
Took me awhile to get this down and posted!


Ultarmarine is still a great album to listen.
Thanks to Dan Lissvik on helping out them out again.
It brings out that dynamic sound
Catherine McCandless is front and centre on Ultarmarine.
I wish Stephen Ramsay would sing on this album (Love him on the song The Angels Are Surely Weeping).

Ultarmarine is not as heavy with it’s electro sound from Shapeshifting.
Has more of a dream like electro-Europop.

The tracks that I feel has oomph with the electronic beats is Pretty Boy, Out The Gate Backwards and Privileged Poor.
While you have a summery, lie on the beach tracks are New Summer, Hard To Tell and In Fire and Sleepwalk With Me.

Ultramarine makes me want to go down to Europe for the summer.
Glad they are following through this style of music.

Best tracks:

  • Pretty Boy

  • New Summer
  • Fever
  • Hard to Tell
  • Out The Gate Backwards
  • In Fire
  • Privileged Poor
  • Sleepwalk With Me

I’d give Ultramarine a 10/10.
