(Los Angeles, CA) – Genre disruptors Giolì & Assia share their reimagined acoustic EP for Moon Faces, out today on Ultra Records. The five-track record features top tracks “Your Lullaby” and “Rollercoaster,” which highlight their nuanced storytelling abilities in a new light, stripped down and showcasing themselves like never before. About the project, they commented, “We are so happy to finally share the acoustic version of our EP Moon Faces,” the girls stated “We wanted to give each song a new perspective, more chill and emotional, characterized by the sounds of piano and handpan.” In the accompanying acoustic session video, Giolì & Assia can be seen wearing head-to-toe Act n°1 from their Spring/Summer 21 collection whilst drifting in the middle of Maullazzo Lake in Sicily, Italy.

Giolì & Assia spoke with Brett Callwood of L.A. Weekly about their EP, “We titled it ‘Moon Faces’ because that concept characterizes the EP. It will make listeners understand the connection between all five tracks.” The pair continued, “Of course, our signature sounds are always there. It’s always our signature sound, but we feel it’s always evolving and improving. We are still learning and growing everyday. Same thing for the style, these songs are different, but also they’re our best evolution. We don’t want to put limits on genres and sounds on our creative process.” All songs on the EP are different phases of the same moon.
