An aquatic cat–jellyfish-alien has been surfing the web this week and it’s thanks to none other than our favorite Swedes, Galantis. The electropop duo has been trademarking the “Seafox” for sometime now, and I think it’s starting to catch on! I feel like these guys have taken a lesson from Reddit and realized, if you want people to listen to your stuff, just throw some cats on it and call it a day. It’s working.
Their new track, “Runaway (U & I)” has exploded since it’s release last week, I couldn’t wait any longer to share. What I love more than anything about our favorite underwater house pets is their ability to be compellingly repetitive but never boring. So much trite electronic music is the same thing over and over until your speakers explode. Galantis, however, manage to transform their compositions just enough to keep you invested throughout, changing the tempo and using interesting chord progressions right when you might feel like changing the song. If anything, “Runaway (U & I)” will actually make you want to stay seated right where you are and hit play over and over.
If you dig this explosive track, make sure you check out Galantis live on November 3, when they will be bringing down the house at the Mayan Theater downtown. Let us know if we’ll be seeing you at the show!
