EVAN GIIA joins Foreign Family with a thumping new anthem, WESTWORLD
The first female signee to ODESZA's label offers a large-scale pop sound with a bit of a house bite.
After signing Brooklyn-based musician White Cliffs to their label just last month, it seems ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective have struck gold once again. This time, it comes in the form of EVAN GIIA, a New York singer-songwriter who joins the ever-growing roster (as the first female signee too, by the way) with her thumping new anthem WESTWORLD. The single is a refreshing take on radio electro-pop with an unexpected bite, opening with EVAN GIIA's catchy vocals which soar above a synth-driven, brooding production that quickly turns into something more clubby with a thumping, house-centric chorus.
"The first time we heard WESTWORLD we were immediately drawn to how much of an anthem it was," ODESZA say on the single. "EVAN GIIA encapsulates a lot of the same things that excite us about the future of electronic music." ODESZA, who have used their Foreign Family Collective imprint to flex their tastemaking and curation skillset by signing artists such as Kasbo, RÜFÜS and Golden Features for past and upcoming releases, have always stood one step ahead of the trends in electronic music. So, with them proudly claiming EVAN GIIA as "the future of electronic music," it's probably a good idea to jump on board.
