Galantis is a Swedish songwriting duo consisting of electronic music production songwriters Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson (Britney Spears' "Toxic
") and Linus Eklöw (Icona Pop's "I Love It
.") This synth-laden song featuring vocal effects was released as the fourth single from their Pharmacy
album. Rolling Stone
asked the pair when they are making a song with a lot going on, such as "Peanut Butter Jelly," how they know when it's time to stop adding things. Karlsson replied: "That's the key to making great music. I meet so many amazing, talented people making music that I feel like sometimes their downfall is when they don't know when to stop. You're sitting in your studio, you're hearing this song going over and over and over again, and I think it's very easy to get lost."
"One thing that's very good is to play your music for others, in their studio or home. It takes like 10 seconds to realize something is wrong."
