It's hard to believe that it's already been two years since Zebra & Giraffe released 'The Inside'. It's even harder to believe that it's been four years since the band recorded their hugely successful, SAMA award-winning album 'Collected Memories'.
A lot has changed since then. Members have come and gone and the band's sound has moved from straight-up, radio-hit rock to a place far darker and more daring than even they could have imagined. Zebra & Giraffe's latest album, 'The Wisest Ones', is the result.
"We know some of the songs from this album won't be played on radio, and to a certain degree with 'Collected Memories' and 'The Inside', I always worried about a song's commercial appeal," says front man and lyricist, Greg Carlin. "With 'The Wisest Ones' we really just wrote songs that felt right - songs that almost needed to get out. Whether they had a catchy chorus, or a chorus at all didn't really matter.
"That's not to say there isn't a lot of catchy stuff on this album; there is. We just haven't been afraid to experiment with our sound and push ourselves with this album. It still sounds like us; like Zebra & Giraffe; but it's definitely darker, noisier, and lyrically, a lot more honest."
With Deftones, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, A Perfect Circle and Marilyn Manson having a significant influence on the mood of the album, The Wisest Ones showcases Zebra & Giraffe's desire to experiment while continuing to solidify their roots as one of South Africa's most prominent alternative-rock groups. Which is exactly why the band connected with US-based mix engineer, Mark Needham, who has worked with both seasoned performers, such as Chris Isaak, as well as up-and-coming artists.
