FRESH: ‘Holy Water’ – Galantis

Galantis release “Holy Water”.

by Christopher Smith

Galantis are back with a brand new track “Holy Water”, their fifth of 2019, following on from “Roots”, “We Can Get High”, “I Found U” and “Bones”, the track they joined forces with OneRepublic on earlier this year. “Holy Water” is three minutes of EDM heaven with the simple tag “I wanna drown in your holy water”, repeated just for good measure!

Not many artists can boast several multi-platinum singles, multiple Grammy nominations, sold out headline shows around the world andover three billion streams across streaming platforms, but Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw of Galantis have never been like most artists. As the collaborative duo of Karlsson (aka Bloodshy, one-third of Miike Snow) and Eklöw (aka Style of Eye), Galantis has set a new standard for songwriting in dance music.

Working as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s songwriting collaborations included Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Britney Spears (whose “Toxic” earned a GRAMMY award for Best Dance Recording). After reaching out to Eklöw (who co-wrote and produced Icona Pop’s hit single “I Love It” as Style of Eye) to remix Miike Snow’s “Animal”, the two continued to collaborate until ultimately Galantis was born.

After making their debut with 2014’s “Smile”, the Swedish duo has blossomed into a full-blown streaming sensation, while notching their biggest hit to date with 2016’s mega smash “No Money” – garnering over 911 million global streams, reaching the Top 10 on iTunes in 43 countries, and certifying Platinum in 16 countries including the United Kingdom, France and Germany. Karlsson and Eklöw’s tremendous success with recorded music is only one component of the Galantis story, however. Coupled with their strong track record of streaming and sales triumphs, Galantis boasts an innovative live show that incorporates a three-tiered stage equipped with cymbals, drum pads, and 5 full-size kickdrums.
