Galantis use Animoji technology in new ‘Emoji’ music video

Galantis has decided to take advantage of the latest iPhone X innovation in releasing their newest single “Emoji.” Avid followers will have noticed several videos┬áposted to the Swedish duo’s socials, which features the new facial recognition technology in the form of floating emoji heads (along with small snippets of the track). They also offered a sneak preview of the music video on Halloween, where fans could text in “emoji” to a designated number, proving that the producers are up to speed on all things 2018.

That being said, the video takes things back a bit, to a time when PCs were just introduced and record players were key. Viewers see this when the video’s protagonist is shown typing into a small, black screen as he awaits the return of a companion (whom it appears was supposed to move in with him). A heart emoji keeps him company until she finally shows up with a box containing a large Galantis vinyl to show that she’s moving back in.

The song itself is a bit more reserved than the duo’s usual party-ready tracks, but its feel-good sound and cultural relevance is bound to spiral it up the charts.
