EDITORS’ NOTES

On their 2015 debut, Pharmacy, Swedish duo Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw molded effervescent house music around the sort of sharp vocal hooks that have served Karlsson well as a songwriter/producer for Madonna, Britney Spears, and Katy Perry. The Aviary delivers more snagging melodies and exquisitely measured passages of tension and release, particularly on “Pillow Fight” and “Love on Me.” However, the duo really excel when they’re mashing up styles and structure, guiding “Hunter” from twitchy, tropical pop to churning hip-hop, and cutting slinky disco grooves through the sorrowful house of “Call Me Home.”

About Galantis

Featuring Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklöw from Style of Eye, Galantis are a Swedish superduo who represent the place where EDM and pop meet. Karlsson (the man behind hits like Britney Spears' "Toxic") met Eklöw (the man behind hits like Icona Pop's "I Love It") at the Robotberget studio in Stockholm. Their mutual admiration society turned into a project once they began discussing a more poignant style of EDM that retained pop's passion. The duo set up shop on the Stockholm archipelago in the Baltic Sea, began recording, and released the "Smile" single on the Atlantic label in late 2013. The hit single "Runaway (U & I)" followed in 2014, while their debut effort, Pharmacy, landed a year later. The album featured two new singles, "Gold Dust" and "Peanut Butter Jelly." The following year, the duo released the single "No Money," which became their first song to debut on the Billboard Hot 100. That same year also saw the release of "Love on Me," a collaboration with Aussie DJ Hook N Sling, and in 2017 they released a remix of singer/songwriter/pianist Wrabel's "Bloodstain." Singles continued to roll out, including "Hunter," "True Feeling," and "Girls on Boys," which featured singer Rozes. The duo's sophomore set, Aviary, arrived that September. ~ David Jeffries
