Galantis - In My Head

In My Head - Galantis |

Another backdated day closer to the Galantis gig, which I went to and reviewed for CelebMix, so here's another Galantis review. This one looks like a really low budget music video which is surprising since it followed up "Peanut Butter Jelly" - like how does that even make sense? Regardless, I feel like it has an Eric Prydz "Call On Me" feel to it and it does seem quite a throwback to those music workout DVDs - although this choreography is pretty intricate at times. Watch a dance troupe nail workout choreography which could be considered sexual at times in this music video for Galantis' single "In My Head".

Galantis are a Swedish duo who have certainly made a name for themselves. They consist of Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson and Linus "Style Of Eye" Eklöw. Before Galantis, they had made their names known in the songwriting world, separately. It's amazing to see how far they've pushed for their career and how much they plan to keep going to become the big stars they clearly deserve to be. This song may have been the follow-up to "Peanut Butter Jelly" but it didn't ride on the previous single's success, only managing to chart on the US Billboard Dance Chart and on the Flanders Ultratip Chart. "In My Head" was written by Christian Karlsson, Henrik Jonback, Jennifer Decilveo, Jimmy Koitzsch, and Linus Eklöw.

Directed by Dano Cerny, this music video is a pure performance visual from a dance group of Sea Foxes- the animal that's identified with Galantis and features on many of their cover artwork. It does have an Eric Prydz "Call On Me" feel to it but a lot less sexy and a much lower quality.

We can't deny the quality of the choreography. It relates and is intricate at times; even sexual but in a comedic way. The team proved that they're high-quality dancers and more than showcase their abilities. The sequences are, on occasion, easy to follow allowing viewers at home to copy the routine, giving us a throwback to those workout DVDs where you copy the dance moves or even the video games such as Just Dance.

Overall, it would've been stronger if it was filmed in high-quality, the low-budget style just makes it very unappealing. The dance is engaging throughout and the neon colours definitely liven the whole thing up.
