Galantis release visual for their OneRepublic collaboration ‘Bones’

Galantis and OneRepublic have unveiled the music video for their epic collaboration, ‘Bones’.

Directed by AfterWeDead, the ‘Bones’ visual is a strictly ‘no bodies allowed’ affair as we take a trip to Bones Park, the hottest new theme park in town. We see a girl lead her partner through the entrance to the park, leaving her normal body behind and turning into a skeleton. Bones Park proves to be a surreal, vibrant and psychedelic experience with the skeletons living their best lives on neon themed rides.

Speaking about the video in a press release, Spencer Hord of AfterWeDead said: “This project was a rare occasion where our amazing team of animators, editors, and production nerds (Joe Cella // Pix3lface // Vince McKelvie // Sam Newell // Andrew Henry // Joey Bryars // Brian Beckwith) saw the album artwork and knew the concept straight away.”

“We wanted to do something conceptually simple, but visually challenging. The goal was to create a literal representation of “Bones” with 3D animation, and merge these CG assets with a moody amusement park environment to create a surreal mixed-reality narrative. We shot the live action plates at Castle Park in Riverside – a small theme park in Southern California I grew up attending for various grade-school birthday parties. The location was much better than I remembered, and the production process became a nostalgic experience to say the least.”

A new remix package for ‘Bones’ has also been released today, including remixes from the likes of Hook N Sling, Steff da Campo and LODATO.

‘Bones’ is the latest release from Galantis, following a string of hits including ‘Satisfied’ featuring MAX, ‘Mama Look At Me Now’, and ‘San Francisco’ featuring Sofia Carson.

Galantis have a busy summer of touring ahead, including newly announced a headline show at New York’s Brooklyn Mirage on July 5 and a show at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall on October 18. Full dates and ticket information can be found here.
