Swedish producer / DJ duo, Galantis, has unveiled their latest single "Gold Dust." Set for release on Feb. 23 through Big Beat/ Atlantic, the pair continues their dominant form in making beautiful, cool electro-pop music.
"Gold Dust" features the duo's signature distant and murky vocals over a soft bed of pianos and strings that crescendo into a simple, but evocative synth-driven melody with a soft arp swaying over top.
There is no word if "Gold Dust" will end up on an EP or remain a stand alone single.
"Gold Dust" follows up a string of 2014 singles like "Smile," "You" and "Runaway" (U&I). The Kaskade edit of "Smile" was nominated for Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical, but lost out to Tiesto with his "Birthday Treatment" remix of John Legend's "All Of Me" at the Grammy Awards.
Dillon Francis revealed that he was working with the Swedes on a "To Do" list that he posted online last month. The collaboration, titled "Heart On," would make things official between the two parties since the Swedish producers tabbed Francis to officially remix "Runaway (U&I)". With Dillon's move towards more melodic styles of dance music, the pair would make sense.
Galantis is the pairing of Linus Eklöw, known for his solo work as Style of Eye, and Christian Karlsson, one third of Swedish band Miike Snow and as the Grammy Award-winning pop producer/songwriter, Bloodshy.
They have not revealed plans to go on tour together yet, which could indicate a return to Miike Snow and Style Of Eye, but stay tuned to see if you might hear "Gold Dust" at a venue near you.
