"anthemic, uplifiting" - DJ Times

Galantis, the duo of Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklow aka Style of Eye, have given us another taste of their self-titled debut EP due out April 1 on Big Beat Records with the release of another track, "Friend (Hard Times)". The track pairs a stirring soulful vocal with a deep house groove re-imagined for 2014 and beyond. Listen to it where it premiered on Filter and here.

Galantis' North American tour starts next month and they're bringing the Seafox, the fantastical animal on their artwork, with them! The tour includes appearances at the Coachella Festival on April 12th and 19th, which will be their debut live dates. When Galantis was conceived, they quickly realized a dj set would not embody the music's Olympian sound that unites various branches of electronic music and have been putting together a live show with the adventurous spirit and innovation their songs demand. Tickets are available at wearegalantis.com.

The duo recently released streams of the EP tracks "Help" and "The Heart That I'm Hearing" which premiered on AV Club and Refinery29. "Help" builds a wistful piano melody into an exhilarating anthem of resiliency. Listen to it here. The pulsating synths and skittering rhythm of "The Heart That I'm Hearing" mirror the song's lyrics about the rush of falling in love. The emotive vocal features the custom "Galantis filter" which blends male and female voices. Stream the track here.

Their previous single, "Smile," became a dance club staple and has been championed by their peers including Kaskade, Diplo, Tiesto, Dada Life, Steve Angello, and radio legend Pete Tong, who featured it as an Essential Tune. The "Smile" remix package features an edit of the track by Kaskade, and remixes from Bart B More, Marco V, East and Young, Danny Howard, and Dem Slackers

Earlier this month, Galantis released the explicit director's cut of the already titillating video for "Smile" as a Valentine to fans. The video was directed by Dano Cerny and premiered on Noisey.

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 a third of celebrated indie band Miike Snow and 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.
