Young Galaxy, SC Mira, Scenic Route To Alaska: Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of Dec. 11, 2017

Editorial Staff

Montreal electro-pop duo Catherine McCandless and Stephen Ramsay, a.k.a. Young Galaxy, have released a single called "Elusive Dream," and it checks in at #29 on our top 30 this week. They said via press release that, "the song addresses the fact that we feel human existence is the craziest, most psychedelic thing there is, and yet it feels like we’re prone to squandering it all. We are hopeful, ready to fight for our beliefs and on behalf of those who have trouble fighting for themselves. Sometimes however, we just want to take a moment to reflect, to feel the wonder and the sadness of it all at the same time. This song is about those feelings."

Winnipeg band SC Mira debuted a synth-heavy EP called Keep Crawling in September, and the prickly pop single "Breaking My Skin" is the highest debut on our chart this week at #25.

Even though it's just a preview single off their soon-to-be-released 2018 album, Edmonton indie rock band Scenic Route to Alaska has managed to climb all the top this week with "Slow Down." The band recorded its new album with producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, the New Pornographers) in Vancouver and plan to release the yet to be titled album in the spring.
