Swedish duo Galantis welcomes viewers to step into a remarkable fantasy world where bodies are transformed into skeleton form in the new official music video for their single “Bones” featuring OneRepublic. Video director Spencer Hord of AfterWeDead says, “This project was a rare occasion where our amazing team of animators, editors, and production nerds (Joe Cella // Pix3lface // Vince McKelvie // Sam Newell // Andrew Henry // Joey Bryars // Brian Beckwith) saw the album artwork and knew the concept straight away.” On his interpretation of Bones Park Hord says, “We wanted to do something conceptually simple, but visually challenging. The goal was to create a literal representation of “Bones” with 3D animation, and merge these CG assets with a moody amusement park environment to create a surreal mixed-reality narrative. We shot the live action plates at Castle Park in Riverside - a small theme park in Southern California I grew up attending for various grade-school birthday parties. The location was much better than I remembered, and the production process became a nostalgic experience to say the least.”
“Bones” builds acoustically and takes flight in true Galantis fashion. The Grammy nominated duo’s latest single follows up the recent success of “San Francisco” (feat. Sofia Carson), along with “Emoji”, "Satisfied” (feat. MAX), and "Spaceship” (feat. Uffie). Known for their over-the-top live performances, Christian Karlsson (also of Bloodshy & Avant and Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style of Eye) are spanning the globe with festivals and shows in 2019, including a headline live show at New York’s Brooklyn Mirage on July 5th that has just gone on sale, a show at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall on October 18th that goes on sale this Thursday, April 25th, and more coming soon.
Galantis will also release a remix package for “Bones” on April 26th featuring re-works from the guys themselves, on their Galantis & shndō VIP Mix, as well as versions from Hook N Sling, Steff da Campo, B-Sights, eSQUIRE, and Lodato.
Galantis’s second album The Aviary debuted as a Top 10 album in 23 countries and received widespread critical praise. The New Yorker proclaimed, “Galantis sends crowds soaring with reliably mammoth melodies,” while NYLON raved, “Everything Galantis touches is gold.” Additionally, their debut album Pharmacy reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and spawned hit singles “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U&I),” the latter of which is RIAA certified gold in seven countries and earned GRAMMY nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording”.
