Danish R&B continues to keep its bar raised high with If You Leave, the latest release from Giift.
We discovered the 18-year artist with her track Me Time and commented that the ‘simplicity of the song lets its outstanding quality shine through‘. A minimalistic arrangement containing the bare essentials is undoubtedly her signature and a characteristic that provides listening pleasure.
Sumptuous guitar chords are the song’s foundation, and her R&B style creates audible imagery and a gorgeous soundstage. Giift is gifted with vocal clarity, so her emotions vibrate throughout the lyrics. Influenced by modern US R&B, Giift’s authenticity sets her apart.
‘If You Leave‘ is a song that represents unlimited love for someone special and Giift is someone special. The nakedness of her R&B production reveals a world-class artist.
Giift, born in Pretoria, South Africa, was adopted and raised in the Danish village of Havns. With no restrictions on creativity in her upbringing, Giift began writing songs at a very young age from her love of creating art and music.
Giift’s full-length debut album is expected to land soon.
