CiiVE's debut release "My Giraffe", fuses electronic and analog sounds to create an album experience, transposing between moods from side A to B. The music has elements of pop, rock and ambient jazz undertones, combined with live drums and sampled sounds. From the pop guitar track of "Feather and Down", to the crescendo of rock-tronic track "Bleed Your Love" and the electro-jazz title track "Giraffe", enveloped with the distinct vocals of Jacqui Hunt.
My Giraffe was recorded in Sydney at Qusp Studios by Brian Conolly and in Berlin at Trixx by Fabio Buemi and Klauss Knapp. The duo's songs are enhanced with some wonderful contributions from other musicians, including drums from Alex Maurer and Dylan Jones, Cello by Ulf Borgwardt, Vibraphone by Oli Bott, Trumpet by Martin Auer and clarinet by Graham Jesse.
My Giraffe was mixed by renowned Australian producer Daniel Denholm who meticulously mixed and balanced the album. The album was mastered by the legendary Mandy Parnell in the UK. The album was pressed by one of the Uk’s original vinyl pressing plants that has produced many world class artists. Ciive has enjoyed the process of creating its first full length album and gone to great length to ensure a beautiful quality listening experience .
