Le Galaxie have established themselves as Ireland’s #1 live dance act with their brand of thundering electro, bursting to life with shimmering cyber-synths and pounding techno rhythms. The debut album, 2012's LASERDISC NIGHTS II, was voted #1 Irish Album of the Year by Entertainment.ie.
Mixed in LA by former DFA Records house engineer Eric Broucek, 2015's LE CLUB combined their signature sound with stunning female guest vocals Elaine Mai, MayKay & Senita Appiakorang. The album was written and recorded in tandem with the bands relentless live schedule, including sellout shows in Ireland's world famous Olympia Theatre, Midem, CMJ, MONDO, Benicassim, Lovebox, Eurosonic, among literally hundreds of other shows.
Frequent collaborator MayKay went full LE GALAXIE in 2017, just as the band signed both a US record deal and an extension to their US publishing deal with Reservoir Music.
The band's third album PLEASURE, produced by Swedish pop mind BLENDE, is Le Galaxie's dream of a truly great studio dance record made manifest. The titular first single PLEASURE was teased in 2017, with a full US and Europe album release in March 2018 to coincide with their SXSW assault and more.
