I’ve been following EVAN GIIA’s trajectory over the last year or so since “WESTWORLD” dropped and her growth as an artist has been so dope to see. Every release seems to get even catchier than the last and that evolution continues with “WHAT U NEED?”. This one is produced by Memba and feels like the equivalent of throwing everything up in the air, flipping a table over, and flipping a middle finger to all the problems racing through our minds. The production has a nice low-end bounce to it with tons of intricate little sounds sprinkled all around and EVAN’s voice is pure electro-pop anthem goodness. She has such a powerful presence on the song and there’s just no doubt that fans are going to deeply connect with every word she sings.
Those visceral, fuck-it moments that come from getting fed up are so essential. We all have an internal clock and when it strikes and when we get that gut feeling, it’s time to move on. I was part of a close knit community for years that I recently began to despise being a part of so slowly, and eventually, I had that moment where I realized I wanted no part of it anymore. What did I need? I needed freedom, a new start, new pursuits, SOMETHING new. It’s like a weight was lifted off my shoulders and for the past few weeks I’ve felt so good. That’s exactly what I needed.
