After joining forces for the 'Giga Streets' EP back in 2016, Black Athena feel blessed to welcome the return of the immense Giganta to the stable, with the release of her highly emotional 'Forever' EP. The neon-clad amazon of the ancient city's south side puts away her usual sonic weapons of choice for the first half of the EP, adopting a mellower more reflective trope. She weaves two subaquatic masterpieces in 'Forever' and 'Otherworld'; both pieces managing to feel eerily uneasy while somehow warmly peaceful and oh so soothing at the same time; offbeat goosebump-inducing songs of a siren sinking into a purple ocean of sound. For the second half as she slowly enters the light she composes 'This Is Real' a broken-balearic anthem with a pinch of late 80s Chi-town bass. Sweet, golden rays continue to pierce 'VS' an abstract, electro anthem rooted deeply in the discotheque! Giganta you've got a hit!
