A Groove-rich piece of indie pop bliss

Milan/London-based songwriters HÅN + GIUNGLA return with some of their most energetic and undeniably fun work to date in the form of “CTR.” Released via Factory Flaws, it’s a track that brings maximum energy from minute one, with a driving bassline and organic percussion elements. Vocally the track is moody and full of blunt, punk-spirited lyrical content. 

Written and completed between London and Milan over lockdown, it’s an upbeat multi-genre track that’s full of nuance and memorable moments. Speaking on the new single, the duo state:

“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.”
