Today sees Shygirl release Spotify RADAR presents Shygirl, a mini-documentary created with Spotify as part of her Spotify RADAR campaign.
Directed by Angela Steps, the 15-min film sees Shygirl, alongside collaborators James Massiah and Cosha gather a group of young creatives to embark on an enlightening adventure outside the city, seeking inspiration from our natural environment to hone their creative writing skills. The stunning Suffolk coastline provides the backdrop to the heartfelt and profound words from the ten budding writers.
Shygirl says of the experience: “I’ve always been passionate about creating opportunities and access into the creative industries. As part of my Spotify RADAR project I led a creative retreat for aspiring writers with the help of my friends and collaborators James Massiah and Cosha.”
Ruth Collett of Spotify UK says: “We are so excited to be celebrating Shygirl as our next RADAR artist. RADAR is all about supporting incredible emerging artists, telling their stories and connecting them with new audiences. We couldn't think of a more deserving artist than Shy, and it's been amazing to witness her creative ideas come to life. We look forward to enjoying her work for years to come.“
The mini-documentary follows on from Shygirl’s debut album Nymph which received critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, The Observer, NME and more. The 12 tracks of Nymph were created with a close-knit group of friends and previous collaborators including Sega Bodega, Karma Kid, Cosha, Mura Masa and Arca. Shygirl also worked with 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 and exhibits a new level of intimacy and emotional depth in her songwriting.
