Zebra & Giraffe is a South African alternative/indie rock band which started off a solo vehicle for itarist Greg Carlin. Debut album "Collected Memories" appeared in May 2008 whereupon the live act was fleshed out to include new members Alan Shenton (guitar), bassist Andrew Maskell, Darren Leader on drums, and Mike Wright (keyboards). The debut went on to pick up the 2009 SAMA for "Best Rock Album" and the follow-up full-length, "The Inside", appeared in 2010.

Zebra & Giraffe are one of the few South African bands that sounds like an international band. They surely are talented and going places. The album really offers some great tracks, with a little filler at the end. Songs like The knife and Arm Yourself stands out with great electronic elements and solid vocal work.
