Down Time stories Young Galaxy’s shift into complete independence and positions the band as a countercultural beacon during the current climate of isolation, corruption, and despair.
Showcasing the band’s new independence, “Catch Your Breath” tackles neo-liberalism and the rise of nationalism in so-called democratic countries As the band puts it, “Catch Your Breath was written for that feeling of arrival at the frontier – a place outside the wave of fear, corruption, and capitalist greed we are used to living within. It is about the rush and respite of breaking away from expectations, about stepping over the threshold into the natural, the unknown, in order to inhabit it and learn to thrive..”
Young Galaxy’s first fully independent album Down Time is out April 6.
