Shy Girls' sophomore album 'Bird On The Wing' is available here on 150 Gram Turquoise Vinyl.
Acclaimed pop singer/producer Dan Vidmar, a.k.a. Shy Girls, releases sophomore album, Bird on the Wing, via Keep Cool Projects/RCA Records. Self-produced and recorded at Shy Girls’ home studio, the 11-track project features a diverse mixture of lo-fi soul, minimalist grooves, and contemporary R&B, all tied together by Shy Girls’ signature warm vocals. Featuring previously released singles like the irresistible “Lay and Be Lonely” and uplifting “This Is Your World,” as well as new offerings like the soul-soothing “Don’t Know When I Will Believe,” Bird on the Wingcaptures Shy Girls’ evolution to a more carefree and optimistic state of being. Speaking on the album, Shy Girls shared, “this is not so much a departure for me but a return to the essence of my earliest work… groovy and pulsating, even fun at times.”
Shy Girls, the moniker for artist Dan Vidmar, first came to attention in 2013 with his slow burning, sax-tinged “Under Attack,” garnering an impressive review from Pitchfork. He followed that up with the release of his buzzed-about Timeshare EP, subsequent 4WZ mixtape and - more recently - the progressive and cinematic opus Salt, which was his full-length debut. In recent months, Shy Girls set the stage for his sophomore album with a string of well received singles, including visuals for “Hallelujah” and “Headfucked,” both timeless releases that demonstrate how Shy Girls is “making music that’s meant to last and continues to evolve.” (Highsnobiety) A much sought after vocalist and producer, Shy Girls has collaborated with Cyril Hahn, Tei Shi, Rome Fortune, Junglepussy, and ODESZA, and was hand picked for tours with HAIM, Little Dragon, and Maxwell.
