Shygirl, South East London vocalist, lyricist and rising star on the club scene, has returned with 'MSRYNVR', her latest collaboration with producer Sega Bodega.
“Hiding influences from Moloko to Ms Dynamite in her pockets like Delboy’s knock-off watches” says the press release and the double A-side single remains deep, dark and composed throughout. It flips from the jarring melody and hypnotic vocal snippets in ‘MSRY’ to the hard drums and club rhythm found in 'NVR'.
It follows on from the benchmark set by previous projects between the pair. Earlier this year, Shygirl featured on Sega Bodega's track, ‘CC’, a weighty production made minimal by her refined looping vocals.
She may go by 'Shy', but trust us, her command over a beat says otherwise.
'MSRYNVR' is out now on NUXXE, grab it here or stream it below.
