BROOKLYN, NY- Evan Giia is a Brooklyn-based recording artist who graduated from Berklee College of Music. Though classically trained as an opera singer, she made some noise in 2018 when she released her electronic pop single “WESTWORLD” through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective; a song that hit #1 on Hype Machine and aggregated over 10 million digital plays on the interwebs. Her latest single, “Focus”, is sure to keep adding to her streaming totals.

A track that she wrote and produced, “Focus” is a sonically huge song that swells with a thumping bassline and propulsive percussion. Those forceful sonics give her lyrics on unrequited love an urgency that’s about as anthemic as club bangers can get. Her vocal production is on point throughout the recording, especially during the chorus. While the melody is powerful and direct, and harmonies are light and vulnerable, giving the lyrics, “And this hopeless I know, But try just one more time for me, I promise I’ll stay with you, I’ll focus on it yeah I’ll focus on it (now)” an extra layer of emotional depth.

Of the song, Evan has said:

“I wrote ‘Focus’ in my bathroom studio in my apartment in Brooklyn […] 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!”

Evan Giia’s 2020 tour has been temporarily suspended, with the rescheduled dates to commence, fingers crossed, in August.
