Gia Ford - Transparent Things


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.


How often do we hear from the outsider’s perspective? For rising new artist Gia Ford, those figures on the fringes of society are by far the most fascinating. Her songs tell the stories of the downtrodden to the down right dangerous. And through them, we begin to hear familiar, uncomfortable truths about ourselves.

Transparent Things is Gia Ford's debut album, and first album release with Chrysalis Records. Produced by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers) at Sound City Studios in LA. Since the release of her first single at the end of 2023,Gia has been championed by a number of taste maskers, including being chosen in The Independent's Ones To Watch for 2024.

Transparent Things is about alienation. “Most of the characters in these songs are outcasts, all with unique ways of feeling on the periphery, somehow,” Ford says. “I’ve discovered, through the grouping of these songs, that I’m drawn to this sort of story.” While each song operates in its own realm, their subject matters create a throughline of eccentricity that turns Transparent Things into a kind of odyssey of outcasts. 

Edition Info
