EVAN GIIA turns her attention to what matters most on her contemplative new single, “Focus,” released today via Astralwerks. She wrote and produced the track with frequent collaborators MEMBA. V Magazine premiered the song earlier today. Download / stream “FOCUS” – and view the visualizer – BELOW.
“I wrote ‘Focus’ in my bathroom studio in my apartment in Brooklyn,” says EVAN GIIA. “It was the first time I experimented with layering different parts of my voice. It's a special song to me because it symbolizes focusing on the things that matter most to me in life. What keeps me grounded, happy and healthy. I am really happy to release this song, especially during times like these, when more than ever we need to be reminded of what really matters. I hope this will be a pick-me-up for my fans. We all need it right now!”
The remaining dates on the Just Be Real 2020 tour – GIIA’s first headline outing – have been rescheduled for August. The run will include an August 22 hometown show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are available BELOW. See below for itinerary. She’ll be supporting Louis the Child on the Here For Now tour, which includes a two-night stand at Stubbs BBQ in Austin, TX (July 21 & 23). GIIA joined Louis the Child last summer for the duo’s sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre show.
“FOCUS” is the follow up to February’s “SWITCH OFF,” which Flaunt hailed as “her most powerful single yet…a new bass-heavy anthem.” The New Nine said, “EVAN GIIA is the new cool girl to keep on your radar…’Switch Off’ is upbeat, pulsing and sure to be on repeat on your playlists.” Soundazed praised the “a bass-heavy electropop rager.”
E! News, Idolator and Total Access Pass are among the publications that have tipped her as a newcomer worth watching. Earmilk observed, “EVAN GIIA is the gutsy, barnstorming pop singer making quite a splash with her unique sonic panache and kinetic live persona.” Wonderland said, “We defy you to listen to [2019’s ‘SIDELINES’]… and not feel your heart tempo kick up a few notches.”
The Brooklyn-based, Berklee College of Music alumna has performed at Firefly, Bonnaroo, Coachella, CRSSD and Los Angeles State Historic Park and shared stages with the likes of ODESZA, Jai Wolf and Big Wild. A classically trained opera singer, GIIA’s voice adds a distinctive touch to her electronic pop crossover sound. She made her recording debut on the MEMBA track “Heat of the Moment,” featuring alongside Hoosh. The song was named Single of the Week by BBC Radio 1.
Released by ODESZA’S Foreign Family Collective in 2018, GIIA’s breakout single “WESTWORLD” and the accompanying music video propelled her to #1 on Hype Machine. Combined global streams of the song now exceed 10 million. Since the release of “WESTWORLD,” GIIA has been in sessions with Hudson Mohawke, Georgia Ku, Nate Campany, Kyle Shearer, Chris Lyon, RITUAL, OjiVolta, Kate Morgan, CHVRCHES, What So Not, Matias Mora and Larzz.
