Live at Coachella: Galantis

I cannot stress the importance nor the weirdness of the fact that Galantis' Weekend 1 performance was their first ever live performance.  Their first release, Galantis EP had been released a scant eleven days earlier.  In short, their inclusion in the line-up was a gamble on the festival organizer's part.  Sure, they've both toured and … Continue reading Live at Coachella: Galantis

Stop What You’re Doing and Listen to Galantis

Honestly, you won't regret it.  Just put whatever you're doing down, maybe stretch a bit and get ready to dance with reckless abandon when you press play.  Galantis is a Swedish duo, made up of one third of Miike Snow, Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklow, also known as Style of Eye.  They've both done a … Continue reading Stop What You’re Doing and Listen to Galantis
