The incredibly talented Gacha recently released a free album containing some old classics and new gems. This marriage of old and new makes for a truly irresistible listen. In true Gacha style, the Tbilisi-based musician creates a soothing, dreamlike atmosphere wrapped in warm textured arrangements. ‘Untitled’ is just a flavour of this beauty. Grab the free album here.
