"ALIAS EP" by Shygirl
If you’re not familiar with this multidisciplinary London artist you should be. Shygirl is an expert in combining industrial club music, glitch pop and rap. Throughout this album Shygirl pays nods to the fantastical and the fictional in sci-fi sound elements and more whimsical song timbres. Even the cover of the EP appears to be an allusion to the character Cassandra from the Dr Who series. This brief seven-track EP packs a charming punch with tracks like “SLIME” produced by SOPHIE, providing cutting contrast with their dextrous club sound. On ALIAS Shygirl establishes what she’s capable of and why we should keep her on our radars.
