Always curious about what Italian record label Factory Flaws releases. I’ve been sent this upbeat collaboration between two of their incredibly talented artists. HÅN and Giungla drop their newest track “CTR” crafted over multiple ZOOM calls, emails, and a flurry of overly heavy files as they spent their lockdowns in two different countries. Namely Italy, and the United Kingdom. Being stripped from their ability to perform live shows they decided to get creative and use their time wisely.
Cue the track “CTR”:
Detailing the writing process behind the song, HÅN & GIUNGLA explain:
“The track was born last summer at Giungla’s place in Milan when we sat down for a writing session together. Visually videogame characters like Crash and Sonic came to mind and we thought that the idea of a race was perfect for the melody. We imagined a sort of silly competition against frenzy, anxiety, tiredness, what other people think about you, and at the same time the need to keep going and challenge yourself. We finished it remotely between Milan and London (where Hån lives) during this lockdown and it’s also a reflection on what it feels like to be a musician in a year when you can’t really tour. We felt that the only thing that makes sense now it’s collaborating and sharing. We’re in this race together.”
‘CTR‘ is out today, December 11th 2020
