Premiere: Christa VI – Give And Take

Christa Vi by Jon Enoch

Christa Vi by Jon Enoch

Christa VI returns with ‘Give And Take’.

It’s a little more synth-based than we are used to hearing from Christa VI, but she has been busy crafting her sound, working with the likes Ben Fitzgerald (Stubborn Heart) on production, as well as collaborating with artists such as Box of Wolves from Canada and Australian songwriter Ben Salter (ABC Music)

Despite the upbeat feel of the track, Christa VI ensures that we aren’t distracted from the lyrical focus of ‘Give And Take’, which essentially documents a relationship tug-of-war.

‘Give And Take’ has been taken from Christa VI’s upcoming album, ‘Makeshift Happiness’, out later in the year on Tangelo Records.

Christa Vi – Makeshift Happiness

Australian / German singer songwriter Christa Vi has released the video for the title track from her latest EP, ‘Makeshift Happiness’.

Christa has a casual obsession with origami and paper-craft, mainly because of the concept of creating something beautiful or functional out of something ordinary, and like her hobby, her music is delicately crafted, but this time it is in layers of lush vocals and synths.

The single has been co-produced by Dalston-based multi-instrumentalist Andrew McDonnell (Petite Noir, Suns, Crystal Fighters). Other collaborators for this single include Melbourne- based illustrator and painter Erin Greer, who provided the cover-art, and her video was shot by London-based director Chris Turner / Favourite Colour Black (Editors, Gazelle Twin).

The EP was released on 25 September via Christa’s own record label, Tangelo Records.
