Hot on the heels of November’s ‘Walk On The Ceiling’ and December’s collaboration with label mate HÅN, rising alt-pop artist GIUNGLA has shared new offering ‘Turbulence’. GIUNGLA is the project of Milan based artist Ema Drei, whose recent output has seen her gain support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, The Line Of Best Fit, London In Stereo and Amazing Radio to name a few. ‘Giungla’ means ‘jungle’ in Italian and it’s in this sort of tangled-happy-place, where Ema’s minimal pop songs come alive with in-your-face attitude.

On ‘Turbulence’ GIUNGLA showcases her unique brand of pure escapism. Her silky vocals flow over quaking electronics in other-worldly perfection. A love song at its heart, ‘Turbulence’ also serves as a metaphor for making it through the hard times. “Up, up and down again, I’m just a plane, you’re turbulence” she sings. “Turbulence is about all the stuff around us that we can’t control. It’s about missing life out there, with its ups and downs,” explains Ema. “What often feels like the scariest part of an experience is just part of the journey. Sometimes you need to go through it, in order to keep flying”.
