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.
