With 2012's Fade to Forever EP, 2013's singles LUCY and HUMANISE which showed up all over UK stations XFM, Radio1 and Kiss FM and incredible performances at numerous festivals this year including Longitude, Electric Picnic and the Secret Garden Party - they have cemented their reputation as the best live dance act in Ireland right now as the world begins to catch the Le Galaxie Bug.
The amazing sound-system concept Laser Disco Night at 2014's Electric Picnic saw them pack over 8,000 people into their tent for pounding techno rhythms, shimmering cyber-synths and a sci-fi inspired electronica light show, up against festival headliners Portishead on the Saturday night.
The Dublin 4-piece’s forthcoming album LE CLUB came out in April 2015 on Universal Ireland.,
Featuring shimmering synths, swirling beats and evocative hooks the next single ‘Love System’ is a true ode to 80’s technopop. Showcasing the band's mastery of the heart-bursting hook, the hazy saxophone solo adds a sense of mystery to the tracks melodic propulsion. Whilst maintaining Le Galaxie’s boundless energy, the warm vocals from guest singer Elaine Mai add a human depth, creating the perfect synthpop anthem.
The track is the first single taken from the English release of their second album ‘Le Club’, set for November 2015. Mixed by DFA engineer and producer Eric Broucek, whose impressive portfolio includes engineering for LCD Soundsystem, producing for !!! and mixing for Hercules and Love Affair, the album has been described by Nialler9 as ‘a rare thing, an album of joyous bangers that works in any environment, le club, the festival and your headphones.’
Using its powerful message, ‘Love System’ was adopted as an anthem for Ireland’s recent Marriage Equality campaign, seeing the band launch 'Love System: A Night For Marriage Equality' to raise funding for the cause. The single is also completed by a remix from fellow Irish electropop duo Young Wonder, which adds a new twist to the original retro sonics.
The visuals for the track have been directed by Feel Good Lost, whose video for Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’ has seen nominations for two MTV VMA Awards. Inspired by classic American films like Natural Born Killers, the cinematic video explores a captivating relationship between an unhinged couple featuring Rúaidhrí Conroy, the lead character in Martin McDonagh's Oscar Winning Short Film 'Six Shooter'.
Known for their awe-inspiring performances, Le Galaxie have become a formidable live act. Having notched up memorable live shows at internationally renowned festivals such as Secret Garden Party, The Great Escape, Latitude, CMJ and SXSW, the band are set to headline Ireland’s distinguished Electric Picnic on 6th September.
With an ever growing fan base, a recording contract with Universal Music Ireland, a publishing deal with Major Lazer, MØ, and M.I.A's USA-based publisher Reservoir and with the release of 'Le Club 'in additional territories, they’re set to be a real force to be reckoned with.
