Following on from the release of her brilliant 2018 debut album 'There's Always Glimmer', Gia Margaret has chosen to do something rather special for her sophomore LP.
The new full-length 'Mia Gargaret' will be a largely instrumental and ambient release, having suddenly found herself without use of her voice. The record is being previewed by the new singles 'body' and 'apathy', and is set to be released on the 12th June via Dalliance Recordings / Orindal Records.
Speaking about her new release, she said, “After having to cancel tours because of illness, I was unable to sing for nearly half of the year. This left me feeling like a shell of myself, so I turned to my synthesizer for comfort. These compositions helped me hold onto my identity as a music maker. At times this music helped soothe my anxiety more than therapy or anything else could.”
Adding, “I wanted to capture the feeling of a truly strange time in my life, even though I would prefer to forget it altogether. This process helped me understand something about myself, & hopefully it can help others, too.”
