Hi Emmy, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hii, so happy to be here!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Fade to Grey”?
Fade to Grey is a very ethereal track. It really plays with the ranges in my voice, switching from my chest to head voice. The song is written in the perspective of Mother Nature and explains her path of fading away from human harm.
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
I have always been passionate about the environment. mainly because when I am by the ocean I feel the most like myself. No particular event inspired the song but I liked the idea of talking about this very pressing topic through music.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Not for Fade To Grey but I will be releasing a video soon for my next single!
How was the recording and writing process?
MEMBA and I created Fade To Grey during the course of one afternoon. We did minor tweaks from there but it came out of us pretty fast.
What was it like to work with MEMBA and how did that relationship develop?
I have been lucky enough to work with MEMBA on all of my tracks that I have released so far. Ishaan, Will and I know each other really well by now and are on the same page as far as our working style. Its always fun in the studio with them.
How much did he get to influence the track?
Both and Ishaan and Will added their touch to the track. I trust their creative ear so we were all in this together.
What aspects of nature did you get to explore on this song?
I placed images of the sand, gusts of wind and dark forests into the song. Encouraging the listener to be transported to these scenes.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
Yes! I have another single that will be out this Fall. I am so excited to get this one out into the world.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Sticking with this Fall but the date will become concrete in the coming weeks!
Any plans to hit the road?
I have my first show in NYC this Saturday. For now no plans to hit the road but hopefully very very soon.
What else is happening next in GIIA’s world?
As of right now, the focus is on my debut show (opening for MEMBA) this Saturday in NYC and releasing my new single. I also have a track on MEMBA’s new EP coming soon which is amazing. Stay tuned!
