Montreal's Young Galaxy returns with a poignant call to arms for these uncertain times, reminding us to always stay real in the face of change, to be true to yourself, and to choose love over fear. "Stay For Real" is a beautiful, faintly glimmering astral disco-pop gem that sounds a bit like a woozy, faraway slo-mo sister-song to "Silent Shout", as Catherine McCandless placidly and defiantly urges you to stay the course. The group says of the haunting new single, which they will release independently:

“We can no longer stand idly by and rely only on the people who shape the world for us culturally and politically. We must stay true to ourselves and feel the courage of our convictions in the face of polarizing political and personal views. But most of all, we must show empathy, compassion and love - even when faced with increasing existential threats, and fear and hostility. This song is a statement of intent, as we enter a new era, to hopefully serve as a reminder to ourselves of what our responsibilities are as artists in this troubled time.”
