“I’ll Be Fine” is a haunting and cinematic single featuring Gioli’s masterful piano skills. The emotive vocals, sung by Assia herself, convey the pain of letting go of a lover and trying to be OK with the pain of their loss.
The full album is 16 tracks and is the artists’ biggest work to date. It’s named after a local Sicilian saying and documents the producers’ highs and lows as an LGBTQIA+ couple and the losses faced during the pandemic. They cite influences for the album as London Grammar, Coldplay, Depeche Mode, and Labrinth’s score for the HBO series Euphoria.
Gioli & Assia are from Palermo, Italy and claim their relationship as a couple is the foundation for their musical duo. They both explored music since childhood; Gioli playing piano, cello, drums, and guitar and Assia singing and playing guitar. Their video performance series “#DiesisLive” showcases their aesthetic and has acquired millions of global views for each video.
