Released 9 Years Ago: Galantis – Runaway (U & I)

‘Runaway (U & I)’ by the dynamic Swedish duo Galantis made its global debut on October 5, 2014, and it’s a track that beautifully blends the worlds of EDM and pop. From the moment it hit the airwaves, its path to success seemed inevitable, as it swiftly climbed charts worldwide. Fast forward to today, and this iconic single has amassed a staggering 1 billion online streams, solidifying its status as a timeless classic that continues to rock the airwaves and electrify live sets.

Galantis, comprising Christian Karlsson of Miike Snow and Linus Eklöw from Style of Eye, represents the perfect fusion of EDM and pop. Their musical journey began when Karlsson (known for hits like Britney Spears‘Toxic’) crossed paths with Eklöw (known for hits like Icona Pop‘s ‘I Love It’) at the Robotberget studio in Stockholm. What started as mutual admiration soon evolved into a creative partnership driven by a shared vision of blending the emotional depth of pop with the energetic beats of EDM. Setting up their musical headquarters on the Stockholm archipelago in the Baltic Sea, they embarked on a journey that led to the release of the infectious ‘Smile’ single on the Atlantic label in late 2013.

‘Runaway (U & I)’ is a testament to Galantis‘ unique ability to craft music that resonates across genres, bridging the gap between EDM and pop with passion and flair. As this iconic single continues to light up the music scene, Galantis remains at the forefront of the ever-evolving music landscape, where their innovation and creativity continue to shine.
