Soulful Londoner Andreya Triana returns in 2015 with the release of her highly anticipated album, ‘Giants’ through Counter Records.Produced by Matt Hales (Lianne La Havas, Paloma Faith), ‘Giants’ is an elegant melting pot of styles, sounds and themes effortlessly brought together by a voice both distinct and timeless in equal measure. Bursting with refreshing honesty and a raw vulnerability, Giants transcends a variety of moods, with “Paperwalls” making its entrance with attitude to spare. ‘Gold’ etches itself into the listeners’ mind with its layered hums and chants, a constant drum that is Andreya’s testament to her love of music and the best times of her life. The heartfelt “Everything You Never Had Pt. II”, is dedicated to Andreya’s mother who raised her during tough times, while “Lullaby” is an infectiously catchy and uplifting escape from the grey months ahead, perhaps surprisingly so as it’s a reflection on her adolescence and her album of the decade The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill which would drag her out of the bad times, a reassurance that someone else knew what she was going through at the time. Finally, “Keep Running” builds with its thudding heartbeat incessantly driving the track forward shows off Andreya’s stunning story-telling skills. RECOMMENDED.
