We love a bit of Italian indietronica.
Born surrounded by Turin, and now residing in the city of Milan, singer/songwriter GINEVRA uses conflicting atmospheres of these two worlds to create exposing music with no obvious path.
‘Forest’ is about love and is out now via Factory Flaws.

Her new EP, ‘The Last Time’ is out now.
