RESERVOIR SIGNS IRISH EDM BAND LE GALAXIE
Reservoir is proud to announce the signing of Dublin-based live EDM group Le Galaxie. The deal comes on the heels of two major highlights for the up-and-coming act—the May release of Le Club, the band’s latest full-length album and major label debut; and the announcement of their headlining set at September’s Electric Picnic festival, a renowned three-day arts and music celebration held in Ireland.
This year has been a busy one for Le Galaxie members Michael Pope, David McGloughlin, Anthony Hyland, and Alastair Higgins, who have remained active since the 2011 release of their acclaimed debut album, Laserdisc Nights II. Since signing a recording contract with Universal Music Ireland in January, the band has stayed hard at work supporting Le Club at festivals in their home country like Longitude and Sea Sessions. Now aligned with Reservoir, priorities will include continuing to pursue collaborative opportunities with artists like those found on Le Club—singer Elaine Mai and mix engineer Eric Broucek (Holy Ghost, Classixx) both make appearances—as well as finding placement opportunities for their sync-ready brand of dance-pop.
Reservoir Director of Licensing & Creative Andy Moerschell spearheaded the company’s relationship with Le Galaxie, citing the band’s riveting live show among his top reasons for adding it to the roster.
“I was not prepared for how incredible Le Galaxie would be live,” says Moerschell, who first saw the band perform at Pianos in New York City. “The energy of their songs and stage presence is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, and the fact that they’re able to recreate that feeling on a recording like Le Club cements what a special act this is. I’m excited to be part of their team and ever-growing fan base.”
This Fall will see Le Galaxie drop a new single, play the Waves Festival in Austria amidst a string of European dates, and release Le Clubin additional territories.
Le Galaxie front man Michael Pope says about the signing, “We are so excited to be part of the Reservoir family, a family that includes music by Major Lazer, MØ, and M.I.A. When we create Le Galaxie music we dream of it reaching the biggest audience possible, we dream of it soundtracking experiences all over the world. Now we all get to dream together.” Although, he adds, “Not literally. That would be impossible.”
