THIS IS "WHAT U NEED"
6/24/19

EVAN GIIA dropped single “WHAT U NEED?” on 6/12, marking her third release with Odesza’s Foreign Family Collective. The alt-pop powerhouse sings about overcoming the all-too real emotions that come with anxiety and doubt in her vibrant track, accompanied by a visual of her sitting on a mountain of paper—one that she says took four days to create. “I had this vision of people writing down their worries, anxieties and doubts onto a piece of paper, crumpling it up and throwing it away into a big pile,” explains GIIA.

With her breakout single “WESTWORLD,” GIIA’s effort as a solo artist was quickly noticed by the likes of BBC Radio 1 and Live Nation’s Ones to Watch list.

The classically trained opera single has also been involved with various collaborations, most recently on MEMBA’s heavy hitting single, “Walls Down.”

GIIA established herself as a dominant live act, energizing crowds at festivals such as Sundara and Coachella. She’ll be joining Odesza for their A Moment Apart: The Finale Show in L.A. on 7/26 and 7/27, as well as opening as support for Big Wild on their fall tour.

Check out her latest single, “WHAT U NEED?” below.

SHOW ALERT: DUNBAR
DOES BABY'S ALL RIGHT
6/20/19

Buzzing newcomer Isaac Dunbar is playing his first gig at Baby's All Right in NYC on Monday (6/24), and it's looking like a hot show. We can only assume the room will be full of tastemakers, given the love Dunbar's already received from the likes of Zane Lowe, Fader and Ones to Watch.

The indie songster delivers a fresh take on melancholic pop, bringing forth an undeniable sincerity and sense of hopefulness that too frequently gets tossed aside by millennials and Gen Zers. Listen to his most-recent release, "woman on the hills," here—and look for the Balloons Don't Float Here EP, as well as focus track "Ferrari," to drop 7/12.

Oh, and did we mention that this abundance of talent and emotional intelligence impressively stems from the mind of a 16 year old? Yea... Let that sink in.

THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THIS
6/19/19

Producer and songwriter Hayden James dropped his eagerly awaited debut album, Between Us, on Friday (6/14) via Future Classic. Filled with features from local and international guests like Running Touch, GRAACE, NAATIONS, Elderbrook and FARR, the Australian native’s project proves to be a medley of electronic, pop, funk, and even a bit of R&B.

James has steadily been releasing music since his 2014 breakout, “Permission to Love,” put him on the map, so it’s no surprise that his 11-track debut boasts three platinum singles in addition to the double platinum “Just Friends.” “Between Us is about those intimate moments in your life... that energy you feel with someone. It’s a look at different stages of relationships - love, loss and everything in between,” says James.

In support of Between Us, he'll embark on his largest U.S. headline tour to date, spanning 13 North American cities this fall. To stay up to date on his whereabouts, click here. Pictured is James’ album launch party with surprise performance with FARR at Los Feliz’s Arsenic house.
