Denmark-born, Los Angeles-based artist Galimatias returns with new single Blowback available now on all digital retailers. Fusing impressionist piano chords, pulsating rhythms, and his R&B influenced vocals, the track also features a sample of Barbara Lewis’ 1963 hit “Hello Stranger.” Another introduction to his ever-developing sound, “Blowback” features Galimatias’ meticulous mastery of sound design with a fresh approach to vocal mixing.

He comments, “I was really excited to get permission from Barbara Lewis to sample her song as it’s one of my absolute favorites. With Blowback I tried to compliment the aesthetic of the original with my composition, not letting electronic elements overpower the intimacy of the song.”

Last month, Galimatias released ”Let Me Knowhis first single in two years which earned praise from the likes of Complex, NYLON, and more. Emerging with a new direction that embodies his ability to bring an organic and human sound to the electronic music scene, “Blowback” is yet another genre-defying tune. Both tracks mark a sonic departure from his previous work, the product of two years of experimentation and musical exploration.

Galimatias’ 2015 Urban Flora EP in collaboration with singer-songwriter Alina Baraz garnered over 400 million streams across platforms, hit #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, #1 on the iTunes Electronic Chart, #1 on HypeMachine, and received praise from publications such as NPR, FADER, The Guardian, and more. Galimatias is now preparing for a range of upcoming releases as he enters the next phase of his solo career. Stay tuned for more!
