GIUNGLA Short Info

GIUNGLA is Emanuela Drei, Italian-born singer-songwriter based in Bologna.

There is not much info out there on GIUNGLA, who tends to let her music do the talking, but her name reveals a glimpse of her world.

Giungla in Italian means ‘jungle’. As a metaphor, this word often refers to situations that are chaotic, evokes confusion, and is deeply connected to the idea of survival, especially in the modern world. But at the same time it refers to a rich environment with many and varied forms of life.
In this sort of tangled-happy-place, where there’s no room for reason and control, minimal pop songs with an in your face attitude have come alive. Imagine them discovered this way, as if they were torn and shredded into a million pieces.

Armed with just a drum machine, an electric guitar and her incredible voice, Giungla is fast developing a reputation for her breathtaking and visceral live show.

GIUNGLA released her debut EP "Camo" with label Factory Flaws in 2016 and recently joined London label Some Kinda Love/Bad Life.

PRESS QUOTES

• "Sounds like the love child of PJ Harvey and Grimes." Noisey USA (US)

• "Emanuela Drei, aka Giungla, made her new EP ‘Camo’ using just a guitar, a synth, a sampler, and a vintage Yamaha drum machine. The Giungla moniker – it means ‘Jungle’ in her mother tongue, Italian – places emphasis on the slightly chaotic vibrance of her music." NME (UK)

• "For those of us who want to know more of the music modern creatives are crafting in Italy, look no further than GIUNGLA." The 405 (UK)

• "Believe it or not, fuzz and guitars were once common in pop (see: Prince), and “Forest” is a nice reminder why." Idolator (US)

• "The sound is akin to what The xx would release had they been lived by the sea rather than inner city London — so in other words, it’s pretty damn lovely." The Wild And Honey Pie (US)

• "Giungla has arrived ready to break the mold that's been set by the indie scene over these past few years. She takes steps away from the expected synth sound and is showcasing that indie rock is truly timeless." Oblivious Pop (US)

• "The sound is very unique is a complementary way, though it’s not too far off from Grimes’ dark altoriented takes and Crystal Castles’ dark elegance." Obscure Sound (US)

• "Blends pop likeability with indie production not unlike something that could show up on an The xx album." Discobelle (SWE)
