Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Galactapus. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I like the atmosphere created by their music.
Are you ready to listen to and to watch something absolutely weird and innovative?
This band is amazing. These guys are not afraid to walk musical paths that have never traveled before.
Their sound is wild, sinister, and mysterious and the video of their new single Waking The Troll feels like a psychedelic horror movie. This video reminded me of David Lynch.
Nowadays it is difficult to find something innovative and therefore I feel lucky to have found the Galactapus.
An avant-garde genre that also takes its cue from tradition, in fact the melodic line of Waking The Troll recalls the melodies of American Indian songs.
An ancestral melody that speaks directly to your subconscious making you discover parts of yourself that perhaps it would be better to keep hidden.
A fantastic find that I recommend to everyone.
Waking The Troll is Galactapus’ Video Out Now!
Weird and Cool!
Galactapus is a five-headed garage-prog animal from Minneapolis, MN, who now debuts their newest music-film, “Waking The Troll.” It is their fourth from last year’s critically lauded (but alas, underselling) I Intend To Stay LP.
Galactapus focuses on producing music with a reason to exist, which they consider an increasingly high bar. Although a vocal group, their songs have no meaningful words.
The substance is liquid, like everything. This abstract approach to lyric is also present in their music, which reviewers have compared to Can, the Residents, Chrome and the Butthole Surfers among others. In truth, although avid music collectors, Galactapus’ inspirations are both more esoteric and elemental. Water, gravity, birds, wind, aluminum foil and such.
Galactapus members remain nameless and faceless by request, and for myriad reasons live appearances are presently impossible. Happily, they believe their music and mystique likely benefit from this discretion.
