The Galaxy Electric is a duo from New York specialising in electronic psychedelic pop. This track, “Stardust” is a masterful statement of intent. To start with, I had no real point of reference for this but it certainly grabbed my attention. In places, it sounded like Joni Mitchell doubletracked over a spacey soundtrack. The harmonies are truly beautiful and the jazz flecked vocal style lends this particular space journey a whole other ambience.
In its way this single is almost wantonly uncommercial and yet that is what gives it a very special feel and appeal. It is original. The central section of the song floats off into an entirely different universe before we come back to the theme of the song. I have to say I am inspired to explore the strange new world of Galaxy Electric‘s music. They are definitely going boldly and I for one am happy to follow!
