Galantis is a Swedish electronic music production and songwriting duo consisting of Christian “Bloodshy” Karlsson from Miike Snow, and Linus Eklöw aka Style of Eye. They are best known for their 2014 single “Runaway (U & I)”.
Galantis debuted their live show at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 12, 2014. Their performance came less than two weeks after their first release. In a Billboard Poll, which asked fans to vote on Coachella 2014’s Best Dance Music Moment, Galantis beat Calvin Harris, Flume, Chromeo, Disclosure and Girl Talk with 52% of the vote. Their performance garnered praise from Dancing Astronaut, LA Times and Billboard, among others.
Dubbed ‘Seafoxchella’, their live set debuted original songs and remixes from such genres as pop, electro, and house. The duo played an hour-long set at the Gobi Tent, with live controllers, visuals, and seafox stage set. Highlights included their single “Smile”, as well as remixes to their other tune, “You.”
Following the second weekend of the festival, the duo kicked off their first live tour with a string of dates in North America.
