I love first spin favorites. Before the song is even over, it demands a replay, as if there was even a question about listening again and again. Italian based singer-songwriter Giungla's fuzzed up guitar driven electro banger 'Forest' grabbed me by the shirt and hasn't let go yet. And after listening to the rest of the tracks on her Soundcloud page, I'm entirely bewitched. Her EP, Camo is out May 20th Factory Flaws. Count me as a fan, more please. Find 'Forest' below.
Giungla is Emanuela Drei. Giungla in Italian means 'jungle'. As a metaphor, this word often refers to situations that are chaotic, evokes confusion, and is deeply connected to the idea of survival, especially in the modern world. But at the same time it refers to a rich environment with many and varied forms of life. In this sort of tangled-happy-place, where there's no room for reason and control, minimal pop songs with an in your face attitude have come alive. Imagine them discovered this way, as if they were torn and shredded into a million pieces.
