The Drop: Broods, Zealyn & Galantis
Your cheat sheet for the week's new releases featuring Broods, Zealyn & Galantis.

Swedish duo Galantis tackle bullying (in the least preachy way imaginable) on their latest dance smash, “No Money.” Voiced by 12-year-old Reece, the multi-layered banger is about standing your ground. “Sorry I ain’t got no money, I’m not trying to be funny but I left it all at home today,” the pre-teen vocalist chirps over triumphant synths. “You can call me what you wanna, I ain’t giving you a dollar, this time I ain’t gonna run away.”

The video arrived this morning (May 12) and it’s a neon-colored extravaganza that finds a girl — in full Galantis face paint, no less — marching into the Atlanta wilderness to tackle a bully with a bunch of lost boys. Imagine Stand By Me with Xanadu-like special effects. Our heroine then takes on her nemesis in a fierce dance battle. The Swedish outfit is comprised of superstar producers Christian Karlsson (one third of Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (aka Stye of Eye). Watch up top.
