The second and most dancefloor friendly single from Galvany Street out now: Numb The Pain

In April Booka Shade will return with their new album GALVANY STREET. A new beginning in many ways.

"We´re very proud to have reached a lot with instrumental music. With MOVEMENTS 10 we closed a chapter last year. 2017 is the perfect time for a new start and to mix things up." (Walter Merziger)

GALVANY STREET marks the return to their pop roots in collaboration with former Archive singer Craig Walker and a few additional guests like Urdur (GusGus), Australian Yates and Daniel Spencer from London.

„I was aware of the band before we started working together and really liked everything I had heard. I was introduced to the guys by Martin Eyerer one of the Riverside owners. Martin was really enthusiastic about us meeting as he felt we would have a lot in common musically and he was right. We met up in Riverside and we discussed music we liked past and present and we had very similar tastes. I listened to their back catalogue and was really impressed with how great everything was produced and I loved how melodically driven everything they did was.“ (Craig Walker)

The second single from the album is „Numb The Pain“, a disco inspired feel good pop song.

For the single format Booka Shade created 2 special versions of the song. A much shorter, more instant Single Version and a longer, club friendly Extended Mix, inspired by classic 80s 12inch releases.

Every single from the album will also feature an unreleased exclusive song, again inspired by the traditional idea of a B-Side. In this case it´s the instrumental tech house tune „Fade Away“, a hint at Booka Shade´s past.

Booka Shade will embark on a European Tour in April to support the release of the new album. For the first time in their career, Booka Shade will be joined on stage by singer Craig Walker.

„GALVANY STREET is the album we wanted to write for a long time. The collaboration with Craig Walker brings in the perfect kind of vocals to complete the music." (Arno Kammermeier)

DJ Mag (UK) "It´s the sound of a band far less concerned making a splashy impression than realizing their own creative impulses, situated somewhere between the mellow synth-pop that´s always been a part of their work as well as a broader indie dance singer/songwriting crossover aesthetic."

Intro (Germany) "The 10 songs on GALVANY STREET sound like a modern and pimped out version of the Pet Shop Boys, especially because of the focus on vocals and songwriting. Inherently consistent and downright splendid."
