Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of attending one of Giraffage‘s playful and wildly upbeat shows during his recent trip through North America with Lemaitre and Porter Robinson. Robinson, who was the headliner for the night, put on an impressive performance, but it was Giraffage, aka Charlie Yin, who stole the show. For the most part, Yin’s set consisted of guilty pleasures and songs from his most recent LP, Needs. But between this hodgepodge of songs were some lovely, unreleased gems. As it so happens, we have one of those gems before us today.
“Tell Me” has been a staple of Yin’s live set for almost a year, but while the response has been overwhelmingly positive so far, he’s kept it hidden in the depths of his hard drive. Today, however, Yin finally set the song free with a premiere from FADER, who characterized the single as “vibe-y.” On top of that, he also announced a new EP, No Reason, which will see its release on November 18th. If you look below, you will find the tracklisting and the EP’s lead single, “Tell Me.”
