“2022 has been very overwhelming to me. Letting go of ‘Archives’ was also about letting go of an emotionally chaotic period in my life. And at the same time, it became the ultimate high that collided with new love. ‘If You Leave’ is written right at that time – as a declaration of unlimited love and as the definite ending of a chapter one and the beginning of a new.” – Giift explained

‘If You Leave’ contains a relatable, love-based narrative and ear-pleasing soul vocals that will resonate well with music lovers worldwide. The laid-back tune possesses guitar-driven instrumentation flavored with acoustic and warm indie-soul elements. Furthermore, “If You Leave” proves that Giift is one of the most promising new Scandinavian artists this year.

Giift, after being adopted, grew up in a small town in Havnsø, Denmark. In her childhood home, there were no limits to creativity and Giift wrote her own songs at a very young age – a mental process that progressed naturally with her passion for art and music production. Since releasing her debut single, “Fed Up,” Giift has been praised by international media outlets and fans alike.

Giift interprets the youth in her lyrics and sings them out in her own way with a remarkably pure voice. She has a self-taught, boundless way of producing harmonies and musical layers—making her minimalistic, yet complex, and grandiose sound stand out.
