Indie-pop band Galactic Dust unbox their latest, saucy single, ‘The Pizza Song’ and an extra spicy music video to go with it. Hailing from the streets of North London, Galactic Dust is made up of Alfie (guitar+production), Noam (lead vocals) and Mattia (bass). No strangers to music, the three young musicians have been writing and playing music together since 2018, fusing influences from the 90s with each of their own unique flair, resulting in the ‘sparkly’ pop sounds their band name is derived from.
Not ones to shy away from music with a message, Galactic Dust’s sophomore single is a clever, metaphorical track all about female body image, desirability and of course… s e x.
With lead singer Noam in the driving seat, she is the sexy and outspoken female protagonist at the helm of the music video, commanding her space and asserting her authority with dignity, style and lots and lots of pizza.
Speaking on their vision for ‘The Pizza Song’, Galactic Dust share:
“The pizza song is a track that melts humour with seriousness and self-derision with empowerment. It presents Noam in a leading role with sexy and liberating lyrics. She appropriates codes of seduction, explicitly expressing her desires, pleasures and weaknesses with no filter. The point of the song is to give Noam a voice that is not often offered to many female artists in popular music.
‘The Pizza Song’ is fun, sexy, genuine, unapologetic and in-charge and Noam is the sassy frontwoman at the helm of it all, telling the boys what to do and defining the relationship in the way she wants to, with confidence, elegance, style and humour. The music video reflects our [Galactic Dust’s] will to disrupt the usual imagery attached to women in pop culture. The barrier between male and female representation is broken down in the video as the male band members are given traditionally feminine roles, supporting and backing their front-lady. The ‘pizza bath’ scene especially offers a vignette of us all and how we juxtapose sexual magnetism with humour and personality”
Dipped in sex, sprinkled with soul and drizzled with a deliciously funky, disco-pop flavour, ‘The Pizza Song’ is more than just a tasty pop song about everyone’s favourite food, it’s a catchy feminist bop AND a tasty pop song about everyone’s favourite food! What’s not to love?
