Galanos’s online bio uses the words “loss,” “madness,” “grief,” “darkness,” and “catharsis” all within the same paragraph. To say that Galanos is riding the black goth wave to Sad-town would be putting it mildly. However, if you have a soft spot for NickCave elocution and the rolling bass lines of the Bunnymen or Simon Gallup, Galanos is going to be right up your alley because they execute incredibly well. Wouldn’t have been surprised to see this on Sacred Bones. Recommended for lonely winter night, snowed-in and painting your fingernails black.
