LE GALAXIE don’t come from the stars but to experience them is utterly stellar. They established themselves as Ireland’s #1 live dance act with their brand of thundering electro, bursting to life with shimmering cyber-synths, pounding techno rhythms and guitar wizardry. The debut album, 2012’s LASERDISC NIGHTS II, was voted Number One Irish Album of the Year by Entertainment.ie.
Mixed in Los Angeles by former DFA Records house engineer Eric Broucek, the second album, 2015’s LE CLUB, combined their signature sound with completely stunning female guest vocals Elaine Mai, MayKay and Senita Appiakorang. LE CLUB was written and recorded in tandem with the bands relentless live schedule, which included sellout shows in Ireland’s world famous Olympia Theatre, Berlinfest, Midem (France), SXSW, CMJ (New York), Benicassim (Spain), Lovebox (London), Eurosonic (Holland) among literally hundreds of other shows.
The Irish Times notes “Over the years, [they’ve] transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit.” Frequent collaborator MayKay went full LE GALAXIE in 2017, just as the band signed both a US record deal and an extension to their US publishing deal with Reservoir Music.
The band’s third album PLEASURE, produced by monstrously talented Swedish pop mind BLENDE, is Le Galaxie’s dream of a truly great studio dance record made manifest. The titular first single PLEASURE was teased in 2017, followed by “Day Of The Child”, the band’s first track written with newly added band member MayKay. PLEASURE was released worldwide on April 6, 2018.
