NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 21, 2014) - Following their triumphant live debut at Coachella and the release of their self-titled debut EP on Big Beat Records, Galantis have announced they will release a remix package for "You" on May 26th and have shared a remix by legendary DJ Tiësto from the package.

The band released the video for "You" earlier this month. The captivating video uses animation and CGI to bring the Seafox, the fantastical animal that is Galantis' logo, to life for a night on the town with friends and talking about her search for love. Dano Cerny, who also directed the acclaimed "Smile" video for the group, directed "You." Watch it where it premiered on Stereogum and here.
Galantis' self-titled EP hit #4 on the iTunes dance chart and was #8 on Shazam's chart of the most Shazamed songs at Miami Music Week. The band released a song a week leading up to the EP's release. Listen to the tracks where they premiered on Entertainment Weekly, AV Club, Refinery 29, Filter and listen to the full EP on Billboard where it premiered.
Galantis is the duo of Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklöw aka Style of Eye. They have been celebrated for their ability to fuse different forms of electronic music into anthemic tracks and their debut EP's kaleidoscopic sound is a testament to their abilities. Their smash single "Smile" starts off the EP. The jubilant track became a dance club staple and has been championed by their peers including Kaskade, Diplo, Tiesto, Dada Life, Steve Angello, and radio legend Pete Tong, who featured it as an Essential Tune. Galantis' new single "You" follows with a spiraling piano and an instantly memorable vocal hook with the custom "Galantis filter" which blends male and female vocals before the beat explodes to meteoric heights leading up to "Revolution." Fan favorite "Help" follows and builds a wistful piano melody into an exhilarating anthem of resiliency. "Friend (Hard Times)" pairs a stirring soulful vocal with a deep house groove re-imagined for 2014 and beyond. The pulsating synths and skittering rhythm of "The Heart That I'm Hearing" is the rush at the end of the journey that captures the heart of Galantis.
Christian Karlsson and Linus Eklöw have individually been celebrated for creating classic pop singles for other artists and their contributions to electronic music. Karlsson is a third of celebrated indie band Miike Snow and one half of production duo Bloodshy & Avant who have helped reinvent pop stars from Madonna to Britney Spears. He co-wrote and produced "Toxic" for Spears for which he won a Best Dance Recording GRAMMY. Eklöw co-wrote and produced Icona Pop's international No. 1 smash "I Love It" ft. Charli XCX and has left a singular stamp on electronic music, defying genre and releasing work on a diverse swath of iconic labels. After admiring each other from afar, the pair set up a studio on a remote island in the Baltic Sea and Galantis was born.
