Young Galaxy Announce Tour, Release New Video

    Young Galaxy’s strongest release to date, Shapeshifting, gets another strong push here through some absolutely gorgeous visuals for single “Blown Minded” and a slew of new tour dates. The video was created by filmmaker Carine Khalifé, who painted on glass with oil to so that she could manipulate, or play with, the paint for as long as she needed. The following is part of her creative process for the video:

    I based the number of frames per second (sometimes 8 sometimes 12) on the rhythm of the music. Everything is based on the rhythm. It was important for me, especially for the abstract parts, that I was responding to the song conversationally; like a running dialogue.

    And in the end, Khalifé made what could be one of the more beautiful and engrossing videos we have seen this year. To coincide with the video release, the band also announced a lengthy international tour that starts in September.
