Formed in 2014 by brothers Andy and Don Ayers, Black Giraffe hit the Seattle music scene with its old school vocals, percussive synth sounds, and driving African inspired drums.
The brothers released their debut album, Drunk Tank Pink, in March 2015. "After a year of intermittent shows and recording sessions, [Black Giraffe is] ready to release their debut - and it's worth the wait. ... More than most young bands in town, these guys are ready for prime time," wrote Jonathan Zwickel for the March 2015 edition of City Arts.
"At their best, Seattle trio Black Giraffe deliver a sound you never thought you needed: The Pixies covering Of Montreal songs, with a blue-eyed soul singer fronting the works. The unapologetically poppy songs twist just enough to keep them interesting, and singer/guitarist Andy Ayers sports chops to burn.
