After receiving critical acclaim for Urban Flora, his collaborative project with Alina Baraz, Danish producer Galimatias is embarking on his solo music career. First up, is his new single “Redeye.”
Over a trippy production, Galimatias finds himself in deep thought as he strategizes on how to win his old lover back. “I heard you’ve got someone new / I’m taking you from that guy / Came back to tell you, you’re mine / Might see my face on the news,” he sings on the chorus.
“‘Redeye’ is written as pure delusion. Like a self-deceptive, grandiose imagination of how you’d win back someone you lost at your own fault,” Galimatias said in a statement.
He also mentioned how the song inspired the rest of his upcoming album. “Making ‘Redeye’ was when all the pieces came together for me. I knew I wanted to make a cohesive album that carried a story arc throughout, but it was all still vague at the time. When I’d made this track I felt like that was the perfect way to begin the narrative that continues throughout the rest of the album, while at the same time also carrying a message to my supporters who by now haven’t heard an album from me in 5 years.”
Galimatias’ full-length project is expected to release later this year.
