I first came across Andreya Triana on producer/musician Bonobo's 2010 album "Black Sands" which featured her vocals on a trio of tracks. He then produced her lovely debut album "Lost Where I Belong".

Andreya is from South London, with deep rich vocals reminiscent of Amy Winehouse, Laura Mvula, and Nina Simone. Her new album largely eschews the jazzy electronic sound of her debut for a leaner more organic style, and a stylistically diverse collection, from the acapella/clap-driven "Paperwalls", the stomping blues of "Gold", the lilting "That's Alright With Me", to the bouncy clap-filled "Lullaby", a tribute to Lauryn Hill. The title track "Giants" is a tender ballad which gently swells to a choral finale, a paean to self belief.

Other standouts are the bouncy soulful "Keep Running", "Changing Shapes Of Love" (groovy with gentle hip hop beats and piano sprinklings), the heartfelt piano ballad "Song For A Friend", the minimalist harmony-filled "It's Not Over", while closing piano ballad "Everything You Never Had" is an affecting ode to her mother with light percussion, delicately tinkling ivories and gently sweeping strings. "You gave me everything that you never had" she sings. Beautiful and inspiring, as is the whole album.
