Swedish dance hitmakers Galantis have joined forces with OneRepublic for their new single “Bones”. This collaboration with the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated band signals the start of an exciting new era for Galantis. Starting out as a warm, acoustically-driven song, “Bones” gradually builds to an uplifting chorus that is synonymous with the duo’s style.

Christian Karlsson of Galantis says of the track: “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”!

“Bones” is the first taste of what’s to come for the internationally-renown duo. Galantis is riding high on a string of recent hits with their latest “San Francisco” feat. Sofia Carson still gaining momentum, along with “Emoji” (which has racked up over 5 million views on YouTube since its release in November), “Satisfied” (feat. MAX) and “Spaceship” (feat. Uffie).

Galantis has clocked up over 3 billion streams and 42 platinum records in 18 countries. The duo’s second album The Aviary debuted in the Top 10 in 23 countries and received widespread critical praise, spawning the multi-platinum selling hit “No Money”. Additionally, their debut album “Pharmacy” hit #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and launched the hit singles “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U & I)”. Christian Karlsson (also of Bloodshy & Avant and Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style of Eye) are known for their energetic live performances.

Ever since their live debut at Coachella in 2014, Galantis have played some of the biggest music events in the world including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Creamfields, V Festival, SW4 and BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend. They have also performed sold-out headline shows across Europe, North and South America – including Brixton Academy in London.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
