World-renowned, Grammy nominated hitmakers Galantis have premiered their latest single ‘Holy Water’(stream here), alongside a vibrant music video which features hypnotic choreography by synchronised swimmers. ‘Holy Water’ combines Galantis’ anthemic instrumental with signature distorted vocals, serving as the perfect primer for post-summer parties.
The past year has seen Galantis drop a steady string of singles, which amounted to the duo now having over 3 billion cumulative worldwide streams, 42 platinum records in over 18 countries, and over 1 billion video views to date.
Galantis’ recent singles include ‘Bones’ featuring OneRepublic, ‘Spaceship’ featuring Uffie, ‘Satisfied’ featuring MAX and ‘Emoji’. In the midst of their extensive touring schedule, the duo has also released collaborations with Yellow Claw on ‘We Can Get High’, Valerie Broussard on ‘Roots’, and Passion Pit on ‘I Found U’. Galantis is set to embark on two back-to-back sold out headline shows at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium on 18 and 19 October.
Setting a new standard for songwriting in dance music, Galantis is a collaborative project between Christian Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Style of Eye). Their debut album Pharmacy reached #1 on the US Billboard Dance album chart on the strength of the gold certified single ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’ and platinum certified smash ‘Runaway (U & I)’ – the latter of which earned GRAMMY nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording”. Both making the Top 10 on the UK singles chart. Galantis’ 2017 sophomore album The Aviary(featuring platinum certified, UK Top 5 smash ‘No Money’) saw a top 10 debut in 23 countries.
The story of Galantis started back in 2009. Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose ‘Toxic’ earned a GRAMMY for “Best Dance Recording”). After reaching out to Eklöw (who produced Icona Pop’s hit single ‘I Love It’ as Style of Eye) to remix Miike Snow’s ‘Animal’, the two continued to collaborate until ultimately Galantis was born. Following their blockbuster performance debut at 2014’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the duo quickly rose become one of dance music’s most dynamic and in-demand live performers.
