Hot New Pop Alert: Listen to Galantis 'You' [Review]


Galantis makes seriously good dance-pop. And that should come as no surprise. Galantis are the duo of Christian Karlsson (of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklow (aka Style Of Eye) who combine their soundboard superpowers to create a fresh new sound that infuses their melodic pop sensibilities with gentle dance grooves. After unveiling their singles "Smile" and "You," the group unleashed the brand-new "Help" today that is taken from their self-titled EP that will be released via Big Beat/Atlantic on April 1.

To the uninitiated, Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow have individually been celebrated for creating classic pop singles for other artists and their contributions to electronic music. Karlsson is not only a third of celebrated indie band Miike Snow but also one half of production duo Bloodshy & Avant who have helped reinvent pop stars from Madonna to Britney Spears. He co-wrote and produced "Toxic" for Spears for which he won a Best Dance Recording GRAMMY.

Eklow co- wrote and produced Icona Pop’s international No. 1 smash "I Love It" ft. Charli XCX and has left a singular stamp on electronic music, defying genre and releasing work on a diverse swath of iconic labels. "After admiring each other from afar, the pair set up a studio on a remote island in the Baltic Sea and Galantis was born," a press release explains about the group's inception.

Kicked off by a wistful piano melody, "Help" slowly builds into a soaring melodic production that is packed with hope and encouragement. It's another triumphant effort that puts the duo in pole position for breakout success. While we are enjoying Galantis' new music, the group is feverishly working on their big debut show at Coachella that is a pretty major look for this promising new upstart.
