First single off new album Ultramarine gets Peaking Lights rerub

Montreal's Young Galaxy are set to return with a new album, Ultramarine, on April 23 via Paper Bag Records.

Have a listen to album opener and first single, 'Pretty Boy' (artwork above), released next Monday, February 4, given a surprisingly airy, pop-oriented rework by cosmic LA twosome Peaking Lights:
