Galapaghost – Pulse

The title track from Galapaghost’s new album Pulse is a stirring ode to the attack at the Orlando nightclub back in June of 2016. While the tune suffers from some heavy-handed lyrics, reverberating guitar spins outward, as if remembering those lost. Mallet-like percussion takes you by the hand, and the track locks onto the tenderness of the tragedy. It’s a dark, pop ballad that awards listeners a dose of true reverence—and, man, do we need it.
