Shygirl Shares New Single “Nike”
As she gears up for the release of her debut album Nymph due September 30th, experimental pop artist Shygirl shares the new single “Nike”, which premiered with her rapid fire COLORS performance of the song. Produced by Mura Masa and Oscar Sheller, “Nike” is a drum and percussion heavy track providing another taste of what is to come on Nymph.
The 12-tracks of Nymph were created with a close-knit group of friends and previous collaborators including Sega Bodega, Karma Kid, Cosha, and as previously mentioned Arca and Mura Masa. Shygirl also worked with producers Noah Goldstein, Danny L Harle, BloodPop, Vegyn and Kingdom.
Nymph follows Shygirl’s collaborations with FKA twigs on the Caprisongs track “papi bones” and with Mura Masa on his tracks “bbycakes” and “hollaback bitch” 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 Studio 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 multiple prestigious magazines including ES and V Magazine, and team up with Mura Masa to remix the Lady Gaga and Blackpink track “Sour Candy” for the praised Dawn of Chromatica album.
Shygirl will return to the United States for Primavera Sound in Los Angeles and Portola Festival in San Francisco, as well as meet & greet fans with a special playback of Nymph at Rough Trade New York City this September before playing sets at Primavera Sound in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina this November.
