It’s hard to see yourself growing. You just feel the pain of the stretch and take life one step at a time, but when the mist of confusion alleviates, you’ll see how far you’ve truly come.
Italian producer Giorgia Angiuli captures that dark, driving mood in a techno tune that’s as industrial as it is emotive. It’s called “You Shine,” and it’s the first single title track from a forthcoming four-track EP due Sept. 27 on Warung Records. “Every time you think you’re lost, you shine” she sings over warbling synth atmospheres and textual beats. It’s not sugar-coated, but it is truth.
“The text of the song is a positive message about the light that is always inside of us and guiding us along our path,” Angiuli tells Billboard Dance. “Sometimes we see all black around us, but nature gave us a strong and deep light that never leaves us alone. The music came out from this thought as a natural outcome.”
Angiuli will perform “You Shine” and more ethereal attitudes on a short tour across North America this fall. Check her cliffside Cercle performance for a glimpse at the live-sung, multi-instrumental groove she lays down, see her full list of US dates and tap into the pulsing optimism of “You Shine” with a live in-studio performance below.
