Galantis are back with a new single this week as they offer up their latest effort “Pillow Fight.” The Swedish dance music kings had previously tested the song out during a recent performance, getting fans riled up for its release in the process. Now, the wait is finally over as they drop a lyric video today for “Pillow Fight,” serving as the first time the duo have starred in their own clip.
“Pillow Fight” ranks as a solid outing from Galantis, as the guys pair catchy vocal hooks against a lively house backdrop. The song starts quietly with stripped down verses, as the production gradually grows in intensity with spiralling arpeggios and growing percussion. The energy takes off in the drops, as a sublime melody rings out over electrifying drum patterns and soulful synth work.
The lyric video for “Pillow Fight” features a montage of backstage shots and performance footage with some interesting hand drawn animations thrown in for good measure, while musically the song is a throwback to the duo’s roots. With some undeniable topline hooks and a fresh production to back them up, “Pillow Fight” stands among Galantis‘ best work and is sure to please longtime fans of the group.
