Galimatias – Let Go

Danish-born, now LA-based artist & producer, Galimatias, today shares “Let Go,” the second single to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length album, Renaissance Boy, which will release on August 28th, 2020.

Following lead single “Redeye,” “Let Go” is another track submerged in Galimatias’s exquisite late-night, blurry-eyed feelings, bringing the sensuous and pensive palette of his upcoming debut LP into sharper focus. The opening half of “Let Go” foregrounds Galimatias’s fragile vocal performance over tender, dripping keys and crisp percussion while the second half blooms to life with orchestral flourishes and staccato piano. Started in 2018 and finished years later, “Let Go” is the sound of competing mindsets or feelings trapped in the past.

Of the inspiration behind the track, Galimatias shares that: “The song is about the reluctance to let go of someone or something you had a strong connection to. The ambivalence can be jarring, when you know that you would be better off moving forward and forgetting about it, but your psyche holds you hostage to the nostalgia.”

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.
