Montreal's Young Galaxy release sequel to wildly successful video for 'We Have Everything'

Montreal art-rock outfit Young Galaxy are excited to release the sequel to the outstanding video for 'We Have Everything' which recently broke YouTube's 100,000 views barrier. The new video for 'Peripheral Visionaries' was also directed by Sinbad Richardson, a Montreal based visual artist working as an animator, designer and video director. Watch the video by clicking the still below. Young Galaxy are also excited to announce that they will be supporting label-mates Austra on their upcoming tour of Canada (full list of dates below).
In 'Peripheral Visionairies', Jennifer finds herself given a second chance to live a fulfilling life. A producer discovers her one night singing in a karaoke bar and gives her the glamorous life she had previously only dreamed of. In the end, she makes the same mistakes as in her previous less than privileged life, having learned nothing at all despite her creator's efforts. Will she ever learn?
"The band asked me to create a second animated music video and I suggested making a sequel to 'We Have Everything' off the same album," says Sinbad Richardson. "'Peripheral Visionaries' picks up where we left off, our main character is stranded on the side of the highway, her bus having broken down. This narrative interprets 'Peripheral Visionaries' as a confession to the attraction of the unholy and a belonging to an ambiguous (nonetheless determined) rebellion against virtue. Our main character was to give in to her superficial ambitions but not without a cost. The line 'We a sea, tears from the eyes of god' repeated over and over, is taken as a foregone conclusion."
Young Galaxy's Shapeshifting was recently included on the Polaris Music Prize long list becoming the only act in the prize's history to be included on the list in consecutive years. Upon the release of Shapeshifting, Young Galaxy was named CBC Radio 3, Aux TV and Exclaim Magazine's X3 Artist of the Month for February.
