Galimatias shares lush new single “Laying Low”

October 22, 2020

On the heels of his summer full-length album release, Renaissance Boy, Danish-born, now LA-based artist Galimatias today shares another lush, smooth single, listen to “Laying Low” HERE.

Of the track, Galimatias shares, “‘Laying Low’ is the introvert’s anthem. For all of those who revel in escaping social obligations.”

Laying Low” lives out the unassuming nature of its title, with Galimatias content to let his production talents shine through in musically rich glimpses rather than splashy and pretentious statements. Galimatias approaches every element of “Laying Low” with a delicate, deft touch, from the plucking synths that open the track to the jazz-flecked piano towards the middle and the subtle processing laid over his airy vocals.

After coming to widespread attention with 2015’s Urban Flora, his critically acclaimed collaborative EP with Alina Baraz,Galimatias retreated from the spotlight. Slowing his output to a tantalizing trickle of standalone singles, he chose to refine his skills as a producer and vocalist in private, resisting the ever-present temptation to upload the fruits of his artistic growth before they were fully realized.

Galimatias emerges from his artistic hibernation sounding revitalized and refreshed, reintroducing himself with a tastefully crafted brand of weightless, ornate R&B. Marrying the melancholic, downtempo beauty of his adolescence spent in the European electronic/hip-hop scene with the syrupy, sun-kissed atmosphere of his new locale, Galimatias is making music that feels as though it were filtered through a dream.
