GIOLÌ & ASSIA RELEASE NEW SINGLE EURYDICE
Italian DJ and label owner duo Giolì and Assia release their new single and video for Eurydice from their upcoming third studio album Fire, Hell and Holy Water. The duo creates genreless sounds that are entirely their own from start to finish without any outside collaboration. Giolì, a masterful pianist who plays the piano, cello, drums, guitar, and handpan, with Assia masters lead vocals and guitar across the album. Through magical melodies and imaginative lyrics, Eurydice describes a tragic love story of mythological Greek characters Orpheus and Eurydice. The song is written as if it were Orpheus speaking, and apologizing for turning around and causing Eurydice’s death. Musically, the song differs from the genre of other tracks on the album. Here, the sound is sweeter, more melodic and romantic, and works perfectly with the lyrics. Eurydice is a delicate addition to the collection of intricate originals and beautifully combines Assia’s ethereal vocals with Giolì’s dynamic percussion. From start to finish, Eurydice is a true will to their talents both as songwriters and storytellers. Along with the single release, Giolì & Assia released a new music video for Eurydice, in which the girls perform the song on a beach by moonlight. It is a refreshing addition to their catalog, which includes their boundary-pushing video series #DiesisLive. The videos are a milestone of Giolì & Assia’s evolution and creative expression as artists who have their own aesthetic niche. The whole record documents the intense highs and lows of the two as a couple, as well as the health problems and untimely losses of loved ones during the pandemic. The songs takes influences from London Grammar, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Labyrinth’s Euphoria score and U2.
