Upcoming: Shy Girls

If you’ve been under a rock or actively avoiding hipsters, you might have failed to notice there’s some sort of R&B Renaissance going on these days. Shy Girls (evidently from the photo above there’s neither of the two here) bridges the gap between the Weeknd and Toro Y Moi, or Prince and How to Dress Well.

There are also a few echoes of Usher in the lyrics – particularly in Under Attack, below – but the layers of reverb vocals plus 80s sax make this quite an enticing proposition. In fact we’re lubing ourselves up already, because we know we’ll be making a few babies to the Shy Girls sound soon.
