Galantis purvey pop leanings on ‘Roots,’ with Valerie Broussard

Linus Eklöw and Christian Karlsson of Galantis have teamed up with previous Kygo collaborator, Valerie Broussard for a new high-energy dance pop release “Roots,” Galantis’ fourth release of the year.

Broussard’s commanding vocals carry the song from the outset with plucky guitar synth dancing between her lyrics. The song welcomes Galantis back to their pop-directed dance roots with a light melody and a drop that enlists piano and blaring trumpets. “Roots” is a change of pace for the duo, who are most well known for their ability to create uniquely synthesized vocals.

“I’ve always considered myself a bit of a wanderer, and so it surprised me greatly when I started missing Los Angeles while I was away on tour. This song is my love letter to LA, a place I had once considered nothing more than a temporary home, but it’s also about any person or place that makes a life-long traveler want to put down roots,” Broussard says of her songwriting inspiration for the song.

Galantis have released a very distinct collection of releases this year, spanning a OneRepublic collaboration “Bones,” which has gone on to be featured on mainstream radio stations around the world, all of the way to a Yellow Claw collaboration, “We Can Get High.” “Roots” is out now on RCA Records.
