New Release: Gia Margaret – Smoke

With her debut album, There’s Always Glimmer, finally getting released outside North America later this month and ahead of her playing The Line of Best Fit’s showcase at The Great Escape in Brighton this Friday & then touring Europe with Novo Amor, Gia Margaret is today releasing a new, acoustic version of ‘Smoke’, a bewitching song about buried emotions and also a firm fan favourite

Take a listen below…

Growing up in Chicago, Gia Margaret spent the formative years of her life focusing on the art of classical piano composition. However, after hearing such greats as Nick Drake, Stina Nordenstam, The Roches, and Connie Converse, Gia developed an itch for writing and recording a different type of music. The result was her self-produced debut album There’s Always Glimmer

There’s Always Glimmer incorporates elements of folk, shoegaze and ambient electronics, all while retaining the delicate and exposed charm of Gia’s demos. Things might seem dark on first listen – her lyrics exploring anxiety, depression and alienation, surfacing memories she’d rather forget – but as hinted by the album’s title, hope lies within. There’s Always Glimmer is coming out on May 24th outside of North America on Dalliance Recordings; Gia will support the release with a tour of Europe with Novo Amor, a run of instore performances, before returning in September to play End of the Road Festival and heading out on her first run of headline UK dates
