NEWS: Galaxians @ Independent, Sunderland
The electro duo play Wearside after successful stints at Beacons and Tramlines.
Galaxians are within the same playful electronic sound-frame of artists like Todd Terdje, Errors and Hot Chip. Jed Skinner and Matt Woodward make the kind of ear-pleasing music that’s never takes itself too seriously – always up for a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun, but at the same time brilliantly exacted. The Leeds-based duo have been kicking about since 2012 and have released two vinyl EPs – Personal Disco Component and Galaxians back in June, which have a hint of early LCD Soundsystem and even some Beverly Hills Cop in its four visceral tracks. Live, Galaxians stir up head-nodding funky grooves using drum machines and retro synthesisers – mixing elements of old school dance and soul music wrapped in thumping and clicking beats. After successful stints at Beacons festival and Tramlines festival over the summer – making gig-goers across the UK dance and gawp in appreciative awe in equal measure, the duo are back on the road and heading to Sunderland’s Independent on Saturday 13th December for a night of neo-disco goodness. Get yourself down.
