Montreal-based dream-pop quartet Young Galaxy tries something new on its forthcoming album Shapeshifting (out in Feb 2011) by enlisting Dan Lissvik of the Swedish nu-disco duo Studio to produce. Unlike anything the band has done before (they’re more known for their brand of dramatic art-rock), the group has released a free MP3 of “Peripheral Visionaries,” an intimate, slow disco number with sweet vocals that groove but won’t blast you out of your socks.

 Free MP3, plus details on the new album

Citing New Order,The Knife and Eurythmics as influences for the new sound, the “Peripheral Visionaries” will appeal to those looking for that same sort of theme–one that’s sexy with lots of synths and bass, creating a more dance-rock vibe.

Before you download the new single, check out one of my personal favorite remixes from Dan Lissvik transforming the eerie sounds of Fever Ray‘s “When I Grow Up.” It’s a good one!
