SONG PICK: HÅN & Giungla – CTR
Giulia Fontana and Ema Drei aka HÅN and Giungla came together – virtually, of course – and wrote a song together about all that is going on in this crazy year of 2020. Collaborations are hit or miss, but when these two Italian creative powerhouses are throwing their energies together, you have to pay attention. They reveal about the track:
The track was born last summer at Giungla’s place in Milan when we sat down for a writing session together. Visually videogame characters like Crash and Sonic came to mind and we thought that the idea of a race was perfect for the melody. We imagined a sort of silly competition against frenzy, anxiety, tiredness, what other people think about you, and at the same time the need to keep going and challenge yourself. We finished it remotely between Milan and London (where Hån lives) during this lockdown and it’s also a reflection on what it feels like to be a musician in a year when you can’t really tour. We felt that the only thing that makes sense now it’s collaborating and sharing. We’re in this race together.
