“In lots of ways “Pillow Fight” brings back the original Galantis heart and roots, and reminds us why we started this project. Launch yourself in every wave, live and breathe the full-throttle mentality, we’ll go to sleep tomorrow” —GALANTIS
Internationally-acclaimed superstar production duo Galantis, known for their magnetic live appearances, surprised fans during their recent sold-out California College tour with a new track, entitled “Pillow Fight,” out today via Big Beat Records.
The track pairs Galantis’ signature hook-laden production with smooth, polished vocals, while the brand new kinetic lyric video – WATCH HERE – juxtaposes funky, vintage animation against incredible live footage from Galantis’ recent performances, and career. This video marks the first time that the duo have featured in their own videos, and have thus taken the opportunity to bring their fans further into the fold of Galantis , a world reminiscent of old school punk rock and dynamic Swedish music sensibility.
“With an ethereal, vocal-centered introduction, the song quickly builds towards a highly euphoric peak of energy, where a simple but catchy melody carries above thunderous kicks and shining percussion. As the vocals return to the spotlight, the track becomes a monumental singalong, sure to be learned and remembered by Galantis’ worldwide fan base in no time,” recalls YourEDM from the San Jose concert stop. “After a percussion-free first verse, the song picks up energy as Galantis transition into the drop, with driving four on the floor rhythms carving out a danceable groove as a dazzling melody takes the lead,” We Got This Covered also notes.
The duo are currently riding high on the success of their current single release, “Love On Me,” which has eclipsed 45 million streams on Spotify, and is up three spots at Dance Radio this week (coming in at #17!). The song is also in the midst of a remix contest over at WAVO, which you can check out here. Galantis has also been nominated for three P3 Gold Awards, and won the ‘Producer of The Year’ award at the SKAP Awards!
