Galantis’s heralded new album The Aviary—out now via Big Beat Records—debuted as a top 10 album in 23 countries including the number one record in Japan as well as the number one dance album in 17 countries.
The music has amassed over a billion streams and continues to receive widespread critical praise—The New Yorker proclaims, “Galantis sends crowds soaring with reliably mammoth melodies” while NYLON adds, “Everything Galantis touches is gold.” Billboard furthers, “Galantis’ new album The Aviary is a bright, bubbly, glass of champagne. It’s luxurious and celebratory, the perfect kind of pop dance, and exactly what makes Galantis one of the most-skilled songwriting teams in the current electronic game.” Listen/purchase to the The Aviary here: https://BigBeat.lnk.to/theaviaryPR
While their 2014 debut album, Pharmacy, was recorded in a secluded studio in the Stockholm archipelago, The Aviary came together in a constant touring climate. For Galantis, the key to their artistry’s evolution occurred while embracing change. Christian Karlsson points to an epiphany he had while visiting an actual aviary in Hong Kong that helped inspire the new album’s namesake.
Additionally, Galantis is adding more dates to The Aviary Tour this winter. The select run includes stops at Las Vegas’ Marquee Nightclub, Dallas’ Bomb Factory and Denver’s Colorado Convention Center.
Galantis is the Swedish production duo, Christian Karlsson (also of Bloodshy & Avant and Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style of Eye). Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and spawned hit singles “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U&I),” the latter of which is RIAA certified gold in seven countries and earned Grammy nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” via the Kaskade remix. They’ve performed at world-renowned events such as Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo and Creamfields among many others.
At just 21 years of age, Australian producer Throttle has become one of the hottest names in dance music. Collaborating with the likes of Galantis and Oliver Heldens, officially remixing Ed Sheeran, Snakehips & Charlie Puth and performing at Tomorrowland all before his 21st birthday, it’s no wonder Throttle is regularly billed as ‘the next big thing’ in electronic music. Best described as blend of organic and electronic sounds, he adds his own unique stamp to every production – Throttle isn’t about what’s trending now, he’s about getting the people asking ‘what’s that sound?’
