Churning out the singles and moving swiftly on from Pillow Fight, Galantis have confirmed their next single Rich Boy.

Pillow Fight wasn't great but from what I hear in the preview this is worse, just very generic and I am not really a fan, especially with the Major Lazer style drop.

Big step down from Love On Me, which I really liked, they really should keep to the eurodancey sound they did on Love On Me or Peanut Butter Jelly or do another progressive house banger like Runaway, which I also liked.

nah, not feeling this one, sorry. Can't judge 'em just by one and the only step to the other side but I hope they'll keep their direction of positive vibes.
Honestly, it doesn't sound like it can grow on me. Time will tell.

Well the buildup and the verse is very good, the drop is very generic though sadly.

Definitely better than Pillow Fight, I'll have to hear it in full to make a full judgement though

I was hoping they were going to continue exploring the 00s Eurodance reminscent style, especially as Love On Me and Peanut Butter Jelly were very Eurodance, I was even thinking recently if anyone, they could be the ones to bring back a trance or trancepop hit to the charts because of this. Sadly it probably won't happen judging on Rich Boy.

The tropical drop is interesting enough that it rescues the song from the annoying high-pitched vocal decoder.

It's okay, but totally pandering to generic trends.

Yes its disappointing after Love On Me, which while having some tropical instrumentation, combined it with disco house strings effects in the chorus into something different to most of today's dance. Rich Boy's sound, if it were not for the Galantisy pitched vocals, makes it sound like it could have been produced by Major Lazer.

The vocal is good and catchy, its a pity the drop is so generic in terms of production.

I really like the simplicity of this, makes a change from most of their previous output (mainly Love On Me) which gets a bit overwhelming at times.

The guys have confirmed, in an interview with Billboard, that the vocals are from an actual 8 year old girl (who is the daughter of a songwriter they know). Also, No Money featured the vocals of a 10 year old boy. Impressive!

Well they pitch it so much that it could literally be anyone singing it laugh.gif (see X Factor finalist Laura White singing 'Love On Me' without anyone noticing)
