Andrea Turk drops disco bop, ‘Give It 2 Me’, ft. DAT

Indonesian-Croatian electro-pop artist Andrea Turk opens up on her identity and sexuality with bold confessional single ‘GIVE IT 2 ME’ ft. producer DAT.

Andrea Turk’s new release, ‘Give It 2 Me’, is an unapologetic electro-pop song that freely explores identity, hopfulness, and the pervasive nature of love.

The 20-year-old LGBTQ+ singer-songwriter explains,

“I feel like I’ve finally found my sound with this song. Not only did the songwriting 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.”

The song is taken from her upcoming fourth studio album, GOVERNMENT NAME, described as a “neo 80’s-disco hyperpop album infused with themes of immigration, queerness, liberation, sex, love, and feminism.

The record, which is a collaborative effort with producer Dylan Allen Todd (aka DAT), was inspired by her friends formed at Los Angeles’ California Institute of the Arts.

The single also features an accompanying music video directed by Indonesian LGBTQ+ filmmaker Hanna Radjawane (aka ‘Radical Horde’) starring Turk in a neon lit latex dance party.

Described as a ‘game-changer’ in Indonesia’s High-End Magazine in 2019, Andrea Turk is steadily on the rise as one of Indonesia’s blossoming talents.

In 2020, her single, ‘Salem’, with guitarist Dewa Budjana, won multiple awards including first prize for the Charleston International Music Competition and ‘Best Female Artist’ at the 17th annual International Acoustic Music Awards.

She performed as the opening act for the Chainsmokers’ LIVE Concert in Jakarta with DJ group Weird Genius in March 2018. The following year, her solo concert ‘Andrea Turk & The Gigantics’, saw her perform her first two albums with her collaborators and friends.

Currently, she has garnered over 2.5 million streams across streaming platforms with her music featured in curated playlists in Spotify and Apple Music.
