Mr Nialler9 is streaming the new Le Galaxie EP over on his blog, and it’s brilliant. ‘The Nightcaller’ is my favourite track, but all of it is good. For me, Le Galaxie are an example of an act that have obviously worked really hard at improving and finding their sound – and their dancing feet – and now feel like a really cohesive band. They haven’t rushed it, and the music they’re making right now and the performances they’re giving are the result of shovel work, allowing the tunes to mature, and basically taking the time to get better at what they do, something that the expectation of the speed we want new bands to come up with awesome material doesn’t really allow for these days.

I thought their performance at Electric Picnic last year was career-defining, and given that, their set at Forbidden Fruit this year was solidifying.

Le Galaxie launch the EP with a gig at the Button Factory in Dublin this Saturday. Support acts are Ships, Nanu Nanu, Sleep Thieves and Adultrock.
