Galantis- Peanut Butter Jelly

Press play and scroll down for giphy goodness:


Life sucks.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

But t4L knows a way to make your INCREDIBLY long wait for the weekend infinitly better (2 days can seem like FOREVERRR in the real world). Go from life feeling like this

to it feeling like this

Yes all this can be yours by simply pressing play and listening to Galantis' new track, premiered last weekend at Cochella (and yes I did just turn into a time-share salesman for a second there).

Don't get me wrong, I was like you at first too. I was hesitant to like or even listen to a song entitled "Peanut Butter Jelly". Was it referring to peanut-butter-flavored jelly? Or did Galantis just never learn the importance of conjunctions? (Not too mention how insensitive is it to people allergic to peanuts and thus who have no idea what the sensation of spreading PB feels like). But, despite my hesitancy, when I heard the first infectious notes and overly-autotuned vocals of the track, my opinion did a complete 180

The build is uber INTENSE. Like never have I been more engaged in the build of a song; as soon as it started to grow I got as frenzied as this kitty cutie


THE DROP IS EVERYTHING!! Good thing I don't take Calc still because I LITERALLY CAN'T EVEN with this drop. It makes me wanna flail my limbs like I'm some sort of wacky, waving incredible arm-flailing tube man

Like this song makes me feel as if I can dance as charismatically and as naturally as Queen Bey herself. You know, if Beyonce was actually mortal and not some sort of demigod (Would the mortal version of Beyonce just be a more publicly-revered Solange? Questions to ask when I have dinner with the Knowles/Carter clan)

For the older generation, I will use a different analogy (although if you don't understand that simple Beyonce simile then I assume you've been living under a rock at the bottom of the ocean without for at least 10 years. In which cause PLZ e-mail me and tell me about your life! Because that means you've either lived a fascinating, unique life or you are Patrick Star. Basically a win-win for me either way). Veering back to the simile from my long, parenthetical tangent, this song makes me feel like Whitney at her primeeee (aka like a 90 pound betch hyped up on enough cocaine to kill a 350 pound man)

And if self-esteem while dancing is an issue of yours, Look no further! The infectious melody and adrenaline-boosting production will have you dancing with as much swag and confidence as this suave, flamingo-dancing mo'fo


Also, don't worry, I didn't forget to mention the chorus, I just saved the best for last! I've been going around chanting "spread it like peanut butter jelly; do it like I owe you some money" for dayyyys now (which has resulted in a bunch of sideways glances my way. Not too often someone references a childhood snack and prostitutional conduct in the same sentence). Srsly, the chorus of this track is the definition of "catchy AF". I feel like it'll spark a whole new dance crave. Instead of "teaching ppl how to dougie" or "doing the harlem shake", the youth of the not-too-distant future will be "spreading it like peanut butter jelly" (see below for the choreography--speedos and shit-eating grin a MUST. Choreography which these Korean swimmers already have the DOWN by the way. Ughhhh, Asians: ruining the learning curve for the rest of us once again with their speedy learning. Typical.)
