Genres collide, courtesy of Galantis and Passion Pit, who’ve coalesced talents on their new dance-pop driven single, “I Found U.” Passion Pit frontman, Michael Angelakos lends his inimitable, soprano range acquainted vocals to the track, constructing what is the first fresh Passion Pit material to gain a release since 2017’s Tremendous Sea of Love. While Angelakos has been traveling alongside his indietronic band members of late on Passion Pit’s Manners tour, which commemorates the 10th anniversary of the group’s first studio album, “I Found U” intimates that Passion Pit just might be ready to hop back into the new music making saddle.

“I Found U” is classic Galantis in terms of its construction. The single’s upward soaring chords exude an unbridled sense of electronic energy as the lyrical hook proves to be that of a sing-a-long conducive capacity.

Galantis and OneRepublic captivate with colorful new video for hit single ‘Bones’

Galantis and OneRepublic captivate with colorful new video for hit single ‘Bones’Bones Music Video

Galantis and OneRepublic teamed up in early 2019 to release their radi friendly hit “Bones,” which has since racked up over 45 million streams on Spotify alone. As more electronic music producers such as Galantis team up with mainstream pop groups, the production values in the accompanying music videos has naturally skyrocketed. This is as apparent as ever now that Galantis and OneRepublic have released the visual counterpart to “Bones.”

The artists teamed up with director Spencer Hord for the video, and he comments on his interpretation of the “Bones” music video, saying, “We wanted to do something conceptually simple, but visually challenging. The goal was to create a literal representation of “Bones” with 3D animation, and merge these CG assets with a moody amusement park environment to create a surreal mixed-reality narrative. We shot the live action plates at Castle Park in Riverside—a small theme park in Southern California I grew up attending for various grade-school birthday parties. The location was much better than I remembered, and the production process became a nostalgic experience to say the least.”

The elaborate video tells the story of the attendees of an amusement park floating between the living and the dead, as they become skeletons at night within the vivid confines of the sensory illuminating surroundings.

Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw of Galantis are off to a strong start this year with their first release of 2019. The track, titled “Bones,” is a collaboration with OneRepublic and has everything needed for the making of a radio hit.

The duo spoke about working with OneRepublic and writing the track in an official release, stating, “It was an incredible experience working with OneRepublic and Ryan on this song. He has such a legendary voice and we’ve always been big fans of his songwriting, so connecting with him on ‘Bones’ came so naturally to us. This is the first Galantis music of 2019 and we can’t wait to show you what else we’ve been working on!”

The track is light on the electronic elements, instead favoring a guitar backdrop with trumpets blaring to move the happy tune along. “Bones” is out now via Atlantic Records.

Galantis released a new track and accompanying music video, “San Francisco” featuring Sofia Carson — an electro pop sparkler with harmonized vocal-led verses, a glittering piano chord progression, and a hook with a mesmerizing brass melody.

The track celebrates the Swedish production duo’s sold out return to San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in November 2018.  Paired with Carson’s powerful topline, “San Francisco” harmonizes flawlessly with its minimal instrumentation and strong melodies. The music video was shot in a Galantis-themed karaoke dive bar, putting Carson front-and-center on the karaoke stage. Carson is known for her singing and acting prowess, staring in the upcoming Freeform television series, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, as well as the finale of the popular Descendants series, Descendants 3.

Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw will be reigning in the New Year December 30 and 31 at Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.
