Young Los Angeles starlet Gia displayed both courage and talent when she made her debut a couple years back on darkly captivating, edgy rumbling electropop song Only A Girl. Not only was it a bewitching yet heartfelt gem, but she also spread an important message of acceptance and confidence when she came out as a lesbian to everyone, including her closest friends and family members, on the song. You can revisit the single, here. We were very much taken in by the song and incredibly excited about this new artist, who’s certainly taken her time to craft new music and regale us with her music. Gia now returns with a sultry, spicy R&B inflected pop anthem named What I Like and an inky captivating music video, demonstrating once again how truly riveting and charismatic she can be. There’s a fantastic spunky flair to the song and Gia’s delivery that reminds me of our favorite Danish pop sensation, MØ, but injected with an extra helping of gauzy sultriness. We’re overjoyed that Gia is back, and What I Like was certainly well worth that long wait. You can purchase the single from iTunes, here.

It was more than a year ago that an edgy new artist named Gia arose out of the shadows of LA to spellbind us with her sound and charisma, dealing out a bold yet honest brand of electropop that was fresh and scintillating. I’ve long been wondering where she had gone, or what she’s been up to, since she soon disappeared back into the shadows. All of a sudden, and to my great delight, Gia has re-surfaced, and in such captivating style, too! Gia  returns alongside Norwegian melodic house producer Matoma on a luminous pop meets electronica emulsion named Heart Won’t Forget. It’s been a moment since we’ve heard from Matoma too, and it’s impossible not to immediately fall head over heels for his tropical mellifluous, buoyant sparkling production all over again. Heart Won’t Forget leaves a bittersweet imprint in it’s tender stirring wake. It’s apparent our hearts will never forget the beauty of Matoma and Gia’s new song.

GIA’s dark and captivating electronic pop/R&B drew me in immediately when the Los Angeles chanteuse first surfaced in the scene early this year. Since then, we haven’t heard much from the compelling artist. Now, GIA goes even more mystical and haunting thanks to a dramatic and droopy trap remix of Only A Girl by mysterious producer UZ. It’s 808s, synth ripples, and skittery high hats galore on the wickedly hypnotic and visceral remix. In the sparseness of the beats and spaciousness of the elements, GIA’s voice is ever gripping, quivering and seducing with much authority. Download the UZ remix for free, here.

It’s been nearly half a year since I first encountered bewitching electropop music from a spunky new artist from Los Angeles named Gia. She’s been rather quiet in the past 5 months, and I’ve been very curious what she’s been up to, as I was quite fond of her debut tunes. Well lo and behold, here she is, turning in a spectacular performance as guest vocalist on a haunting, wobbling electronic song named Voodoo from S-X. S-X is a young producer who has worked with well respected hip hop artists including Childish Gambino and Lil Wayne. On his latest jam, he takes a dramatic dubstep and future bass approach, setting up the perfect powerful soundscape for Gia’s impressive vocals. I’m reminded of a cleaner Flosstradamus or RL Grime song, while Gia’s vocals evoke a fiery blend of Danish songstress MØ and dark pop act BANKS in a most spellbinding way. I, for one, am incredibly excited she’s back with new material, and I can’t wait for what she might have in store for us next. Voodoo is out now on iTunes.

Gia made a remarkable and bold statement a couple weeks ago, when the emerging 18 year old pop talent suddenly burst on to the scene with her dark and captivating electronic pop music, via debuts Hard Road and Only A Girl. The two tracks quickly garnered some much deserved buzz and attention. This week sees the return of the rising artist with a magnetizing and enthralling new treat named LOUD. Despite its name, LOUD starts off cozily acoustic and folk flavored, before launching into breezy trap imbued, vociferous and audacious electropop. LOUD is a concoction of many contrasting colors, carrying both sensual guitars and classy strings. Gia’s vocals are intimately earnest and fiercely passionate. The third song from the new songstress drives it home: fresh young talent Gia is an artist to watch in 2015. Keep an eye out for her debut EP, to be released within the next few months.

There’s a new girl on the electronic pop block, and her name is Gia. This week, the newcomer dropped two captivating and dark tunes, and both are ace jams. Only A Girl, which is now accompanies by a video you can view below, is a seductive, crisp, and very much honest and revealing tune. BANKS like mystique, Tove Lo like deep pop vocals, and SOHN styled electronic production make for a mesmerizing treat. Gia’s other debut, Hard Road, is also a gorgeous electronic R&B and pop tune. Divine vocals and two stunning debuts quickly mark Gia as a new pop artist to watch.
