SHYGIRL has shared her new single “Come For Me” as well as the official visualiser. Back in my day, we called these visualisers videos! Geez, I’m old and it often sounds like I’m hearing two different radio stations at the same time. That’s odd, eh?
On the heels of the announcement of her forthcoming debut album Nymph due September 30th via Because Music, UK-based experimental pop artist Shygirl shares the second offering from the album, “Come For Me.” Produced by Arca, “Come For Me” is a broken-down dance track showcasing the various iterations of electronic dance music Shygirl cascades through on Nymph. Throughout the song Shygirl reminds us how she has the power and the know-how to dominate and direct what’s going down; “Come when you’re called / Be easy if I take the lead” she says.
“Come For Me” follows the lead single from Nymph, “Firefly,” which arrived with visuals directed by Yasser Abubeker. The 12-tracks of Nymph were created with a close-knit group of friends and previous collaborators including Mura Masa, Sega Bodega, Karma Kid, Cosha, and as previously mentioned Arca, along with the producers Noah Goldstein, Danny L Harle, BloodPop, Vegyn and Kingdom. Nymph reveals Shygirl’s inner self-reflection in experimental vocal tones and deconstructed dance melodies andexhibits a new level of intimacy and emotional depth in her songwriting.
Nymph will follow Shygirl’s collaboration with FKA twigs on the Caprisongs track “papi bones” along with the late 2021 offering “Cleo,” which arrived with a Trinity Ellis-directed music video as well as a live performance of the track from Abbey Road Studios as part of Studio 1’s 90th Anniversary programming. Also in 2021, Shygirl shared the slowthai collaboration “BDE” and the self-directed Burberry-styled short film, Shygirl BLU, a live realization of her universally-acclaimed ALIAS EP.
Since the ALIAS EP’s release, Shygirl has gone on to star in Burberry’s AW21 presentation, claim a coveted spot in Forbes’ 30 Under 30, grace the cover of Berlin’s influential 032c magazine and team up with Mura Masa to remix the Lady Gaga and Blackpink track “Sour Candy” for the praised Dawn of Chromatica album.
This past March, Shygirl performed a few shows in New York City and Los Angeles, all of which sold out within 48 hours of their announcement. Shygirl will be performing at various festivals across Europe this summer including Primavera in Spain, We Love Green in Paris, Dour Festival in Belgium, Katowice Festival in Poland and many more. Shygirl will also return to the United States for Ladyland Festival in New York City this June and then again in mid-September for Los Angeles’ Primavera Sound.
