Songfacts®:

  • Galantis is a Swedish electronic music production and songwriting duo consisting of Christian "Bloodshy" Karlsson of Miike Snow, and Linus Eklöw aka Style of Eye. Both are successful songwriters in their own right; Karlsson co-wrote Britney Spears' "Toxic" and Eklow co-penned Icona Pop's "I Love It."
  • In 2009 Miike Snow asked Eklöw to remix their song "Animal," after which the two Swedes started hanging out in the studio together, exchanging musical ideas. The duo signed to Atlantic Records' dance imprint Big Beat Records in mid-2013. This song, the lead single from their debut album Pharmacy, was their first international hit together.
