Biography

For LE GALAXIE the last few year has been incredible, and packed full of highlights. Playing to captive crowds of thousands at Irish festivals like Forbidden Fruit, Longitude, Sea Sessions, Castlpalooza, Sunday midnight show at Electric Picnic, open-air 3D oracular spectaculars in Dublin’s Meeting House Square and a sold-out show in the country’s finest venue, the Olympia Theatre.

It’s been an unrelenting upward curve for Ireland’s number one dance act who have worked their asses off since day one. 2011’s debut album Laserdisc Nights II (voted #1 Irish Album Of The Year by Entertainment.ie) was followed in 2012 by the the Fade 2 Forever EP which featured the bands biggest hit yet, the ...

For LE GALAXIE the last few year has been incredible, and packed full of highlights. Playing to captive crowds of thousands at Irish festivals like Forbidden Fruit, Longitude, Sea Sessions, Castlpalooza, Sunday midnight show at Electric Picnic, open-air 3D oracular spectaculars in Dublin’s Meeting House Square and a sold-out show in the country’s finest venue, the Olympia Theatre.

It’s been an unrelenting upward curve for Ireland’s number one dance act who have worked their asses off since day one. 2011’s debut album Laserdisc Nights II (voted #1 Irish Album Of The Year by Entertainment.ie) was followed in 2012 by the the Fade 2 Forever EP which featured the bands biggest hit yet, the evocative, synth-soacked Love System (feat. Elaine Mai).

2015 has seen the band sign with Universal Music Ireland and release the new album ‘Le Club’ to universal acclaim. Mixed in L.A. with Eric Broucek, ex-DFA guru and Holy Ghost, Classixxx and Hercules & The Love Affair producer, the album’s fourteen dancefloor tearjerkers are the a quantum leap forward for Le Galaxie.

Meshing pounding techno rhythms, shimmering cyber-synths and cascading dream-streams of sonic guitar-wizardry, the 4-piece have stamped their ‘grid vs. guitars’ live dance frenzy on Ireland, UK, France, Holland, Portugal, Sweden, Germany and with recent shows at SXSW, The Great Escape and Midem. Catch them now or regret it forever.

‘Le Club is a rare thing, an album of joyous bangers that works in any environment, le club, the festival and your headphones…’ NIALLER9
‘Over the past two years, Le Galaxie have transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit. Without question, one of the best sets of the weekend. *****’ IRISH TIMES

‘The show that everybody wants to see late tonight. They are simply fantastic, faultless from start to a finish…’ HeinekenMusic.ie

‘For sheer exuberance on stage no one came close to Le Galaxie over the whole weekend. Their set began at 2am and one hour later everyone inside the Little Big Tent was a mess of glee and exhaustion. Lethal.’ Entertainment.ie

‘Le Galaxie have upped their game to match their profile…But it is the music, above all else, that make this performance one of the biggest hits of the weekend…[They] depart stage-left safe in the knowledge that they’ve just conquered Stradbally. Stay tuned as they continue get bigger and better.’ State.ie

‘Merging all the delirious wonderment of Daft Punk with Kraftwerk, Le Galaxie are that and so much more…’ HARMLESS NOISE

‘…an album that glitters with eleven slabs of solid gold dancefloor fillers…’ THE SUN

‘…they launch into the kind of showing to leave you open mouthed in astonishment. Surely, Le Galaxie’s cover as Ireland’s best kept musical secret is about to be blown wide open…’
STATE.IE

The entire set was a mind-blowing, sample-tastic,synth-shimmering, teasingly-torrential guitar fuelled frenzy, which the crowd adored them for….’
NIAMH DOLAN, HEINEKENMUSIC.IE

‘The combined energy of any of the bands on Castlepalooza’s first day was nothing compared with the buzz from the crowd for those 40 minutes…’
CLUAS.COM, CASTLEPALOOZA REVIEW

‘Plenty to twitch and stomp your feet to here…out of this world…’
