Arty has released an anthemic remix of OneRepublic‘s “Future Looks Good” from the pop-rock band’s 2016 fourth studio album, Oh My My. While keeping the original guitar melody and natural build, the Russian artist adds underlying whispering synths, a big reverb on the buildup, and EDM drums reminiscent of the early 2010s. The drop is also reminiscent of those times, showering the listener with bright electro house synths that empower the accompanying acoustic guitar from the initial offering.

Known for his uplifting anthems such as “Save Me Tonight,” “Sunrise,” and his heartfelt Avicii tribute, “Tim,” Arty does not hold back on this most recent rework. Only a month back, the Anjunabeats and Armada powerhouse also remixed U2’s “Beautiful Day,” further proving the veteran’s melodic prowess and harmonic prestige. Arty also recently released a new single on Armada, called “Find You.”

Galantis purvey pop leanings on ‘Roots,’ with Valerie Broussard

Linus Eklöw and Christian Karlsson of Galantis have teamed up with previous Kygo collaborator, Valerie Broussard for a new high-energy dance pop release “Roots,” Galantis’ fourth release of the year.

Broussard’s commanding vocals carry the song from the outset with plucky guitar synth dancing between her lyrics. The song welcomes Galantis back to their pop-directed dance roots with a light melody and a drop that enlists piano and blaring trumpets. “Roots” is a change of pace for the duo, who are most well known for their ability to create uniquely synthesized vocals.

“I’ve always considered myself a bit of a wanderer, and so it surprised me greatly when I started missing Los Angeles while I was away on tour. This song is my love letter to LA, a place I had once considered nothing more than a temporary home, but it’s also about any person or place that makes a life-long traveler want to put down roots,” Broussard says of her songwriting inspiration for the song.

Galantis have released a very distinct collection of releases this year, spanning a OneRepublic collaboration “Bones,” which has gone on to be featured on mainstream radio stations around the world, all of the way to a Yellow Claw collaboration, “We Can Get High.” “Roots” is out now on RCA Records.

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.

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x
