Giraffage: Pretty Things EP

Pretty Things EP Cover Art

Pretty Things is the debut EP from San Francisco artist/producer Giraffage, aka Charlie Yin. The four tracks are swirling with dream pop goodness. Lush synthesizer pads, minimalist beats and atmospheric textures abound. Unlike Neon Indian, Washed Out or other chill practitioners, Giraffage makes mainly instrumental music, with there being only cursory vocals used as another layer sound. This relegation of vocals to being just another instrumental layer, allows the music to transport the listener through the scenes of their own mind. All in all this gives the EP has a more intimate feel. Stream and download Pretty Things at the link below.
