Video premiere: ‘Galáctica’ by Bang Data| 22 June, 2017
Oakland, California’s Bang Data, led by Deuce Eclipse on vocals and producer/instrumentalist Juan Manuel Caipo, have a new lyric video for a song that is a cosmic mix of reggae and rock.
“Galáctica,” the lead single for their forthcoming album, Loco, starts off with almost a dancehall vibe before transforming into a fusion of reggae, ska, hip hop and rock.
The song is about a man who’s in love with a woman that he can’t ever have, Eclipse told Sounds and Colours.
“She is in love with everything else in the world except him,” he said. “She’s Galáctica – out of reach.”
Bang Data was featured on the critically acclaimed Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute album Quiero Creedence, in which they recorded John Fogerty’s classic “Fortunate Son” fusing rock and rumbia rhythms as the canvas for Deuce’s singing and fearless rap. The album, co-produced by Bang Data‘s own Juan Caipo, includes tracks by Enrique Bunbury, Los Lobos, Juan Gabriel, Salvador Santana ft Juanes and Asdru Sierra, Billy Gibbons & Santa Cecilia, Los Lonely Boys, Enjambre, Enanitos Verdes, to name a few.
