Giraffage reveals new single ‘Green Tea’ feat. Angelica Bess, Too Real debut album out this Friday


Debut album Too Real out this Friday

“‘Too Real’ is its own tribute to digital culture – peppered with the purring cell phone
vibrations and the twinkling tones of text messages – but is subtler, sleepier
and sexier. With watercolour softness, he blends the whimsical melodies
of ’80s Japanese house music with contemporary R&B to create a
sound that’s inextricably modern.”


Giraffage is an omnivorous music lover.

This San Franciscan is no newcomer, but 2017 is his year.

San Franciscan producer Charlie Yin, best known as Giraffage, has unveiled his new single Green Tea“, taken from his forthcoming debut album, Too Real, out this Friday. A collaboration with American vocalist Angelica Bess that premiered overnight on The FADER, the track is released on Counter Records via Inertia Music, and follows on from his previous singles from the album, Slowly and “Maybes“.

Combining a soft build with Bess’ smooth vocals, the combination of piano chords, and bass-backed electro synths make for a slow, dreamy production that carries added tempo on the breakdown.

After making a name for himself touring with names like Porter Robinson, Flume, Phantogram,and XXYYXX, Giraffage has taken a sonic leap forward on his debut album Too Real. Inspired by groundbreaking acts as Yellow Magic Orchestra, Haruomi Hosono, Soichi Terada, Interpol, and RadioheadToo Real acts as an embodiment of the producer’s personal journey of self healing, with each song representing a different period in his life.

‘This is some of the best music I’ve ever written,” says Yin. “The album was written from 2015 – 2017 during a dark period of my life. So finally finishing it was a rather cathartic experience and I’m excited for what the future may hold.”
