Introducing Galapaghost and the Pulse EP

On the 7th of November Galapaghost released his first song of his upper coming album entitled Pulse.The title track of this album "Pulse" was heavily inspired by the nightclub terrorist attack in Orlando a year ago, which was called Pulse. It was the deadliest attack on the LGBT community in U.S. history.

As the artist quotes:"The album is definitely not a political album at all, but some of the songs are about how I've become disillusioned with America and somewhat about being caught in the middle of not fully feeling American but not feeling quite European, after living there for two years. Some songs are just about figuring out what the hell I'm going to do with my life if I don't find success in music and trying to come to terms with that as I enter my 30's". 

The album was self-produced and recorded in Italy in 15 days. The recurring effect that was used on the whole album was distortion on the drums and delay on the vocals as Galapaghost wanted to give it a grittier feel.

He is very mature in his life aproach and his musical expression even though he is only in his 30's.His universal aspect of humanity must be a role model for all the people in todays world when terrorist attacks are becoming an everyday reality...

In the video of the Pulse track he shows war images, images of the war world 2 scenery among others that bring up aquared memories and feeling into the surface. The war that the terrorist have uprisen to the human nation is unexeptable but Galapaghost doesn't stay in his music only to that particular aspect . 

His latest album is a way of expressing his inner feelings about his life and sometimes maybe his thoughts coexxist with the thoughts of others but after all that is the essense of the Artistic nature. 

Some of his music creations were featured in a major Italian film called "ll Ragazzo Invisibile", which was directed by Oscar winning director Gabriele Salvatores. Salvatores commissioned him to write a title track for the film, which was featured on the official soundtrack. The film won a David di Donatello Award (The Italian Oscar equivalent).
