Galapaghost – “I Never Arrived”


Hailing from Woodstock, New York, Galapaghost grew up in a place that played a nice role in psychedelic folk music, so it’s apt that the project’s folky stylistic direction is both psychedelic and hauntingly nostalgic. The project is now based in Austin, Texas — whose rich music scene seems like a good fit as well for this — and is building up recognition with efforts like “I Never Arrived”, where dreamy acoustics and a twinkling sporadic key works with breath-y vocals for something serene and melodically hypnotic. Plus, the act is already receiving some cinematic attention; via Galapaghost: “My music was recently featured in a major Italian film called ‘Il Ragazzo Invisibile’. It was directed by Oscar winning director Gabriele Salvatores. Salvatores also commissioned me to write a title song for the movie, which was featured on the official soundtrack. The movie has already been released in many countries and has won a David Di Donatello award (the Italian Oscars).”
