Indonesian-Croatian electro-pop artist Andrea Turk has unleashed her new song along to a steamy, sexy visual which tells of a woman letting her down to allow herself to love fully.
‘Give It 2 Me’ is a very personal song by the 20-year-old queer singer-songwriter and producer who is currently working on her 4th studio album, ‘GOVERNMENT NAME’, a Neo 80’s-Disco-Hyperpop album exploring the themes of immigration, queerness, liberation, sex, love and feminism in collaboration with Dylan Allen Todd, otherwise known as, DAT.
Filmed and directed by indonesian filmmaker Hanna Radjawane the video is a kinetic display showing Andrea and a colourful diverse community of collaborators and friends having a blast celebrating confidence and the nature of love.
Andrea details the track: “I feel like I’ve finally found my sound with this song. Not only did the song-writing process feel so natural, the entire song was also written about a girl I was crushing on that was playing hard to get- and I could tell the tension between us was rising. I’ve always been shy to talk about my sexuality because of the norms I grew up with and the society I was surrounded by. Finally, I have a support system who can make me feel safe enough to share with this part of me in my music. Han (the director) really wanted to make that apparent in the video. The crew was made up of almost — if not all — BIPOC and LGBTQ members, and you can definitely tell we were just having a good time together. Everyone on set was a close friend and they made this project a dream come true for me.”
