Contrairement à ce que suggère son nom de scène, la musique de Blane Muise est loin d’être timide. À l’aide d’instrus radicales mêlant grime, garage et musique industrielle, la chanteuse et DJ originaire du sud-est de Londres repend un phrasé toxique des plus envoutants. Son premier album Alias paru en novembre dernier n’a d’ailleurs pas manqué de conquérir les clubs de la capitale anglaise. Cette figure emblématique de l’underground londonien viendra clôturer avec fureur cette soirée où il va faire très chaud !
“An amalgamation of genres born in the club but not tied completely to it” – is how Shygirl has described her sound.
South-East London born and raised Shygirl is far from defined by her name. Shygirl is not an alter-ego but a collective of personality traits which can take her to the next level with no repercussions.
Born from long-time musical influences and exploration of sound, Shygirl is radiated outwardly by her creative flare and ostentatious performance style. Additionally she is highly renowned for wielding hand-held fans and her ever changing hair choices.
Shygirl’s highly-anticipated ALIAS EP was released on Nov 2020.
Across her new 7-track project, Shygirl — together with her aliases Baddie, Bae, Bovine and Bonk — deliver a mind-bending missive on self-actualization. Creatively based around overdriven traits that dwell within Shygirl, her new EP mines the depths of her own personality to extract the extremes: the nocturnal sexual deviant, the playful nymph, the nonchalant it-girl and the embodiment of her South London roots. Styled in their favorite designers and realized in 3D by digital artists Sy Blake and Maurice Andresen, the characters serve as a conduit through which Shygirl can embrace all her most polarizing traits, toxic or otherwise. From the pitched-up, playful call and response on EP opener « TWELVE » to the lightning-fast flow of grime-infused « LENG, » Shygirl’s aliases each play a different role in telling her story. Each of the four aliases was first introduced in the « SLIME » video, released last week and already breaking 100,000 views.
Acting as a conductor for some of UK music’s most exciting producers, Shygirl’s curatorial flair is on display throughout ALIAS, enlisting the help of producers like UK beatmaker Happa (« LENG, » « SIREN »), songwriter and musician Oscar Scheller (« TASTY »), SOPHIE & Kai Whiston (« SLIME »), Karma Kid (« BAWDY ») and NUXXE label co-founder Sega Bodega throughout the project.
