A searing force to be reckoned with Shygirl is the third cover star of Clash 119.
No one does it like Shygirl. The London multi-disciplinarian sits out-with genre boundaries, subverting club tropes to present a new pop vision, a fresh means of creating music that is both immediately accessible and wholly daring.
Last year’s ‘Alias’ EP shattered the glass ceiling; Rihanna has used her music in Fenty campaigns, and she’s collaborated with Arca on some truly earth-shattering work. It’s all driven forwards by a desire to be true to herself, and her ambitions, no matter the cost.
Shygirl sums it up: “Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been more open than I am now…”
Also featured in this magazine are BRIT nominee Joy Crookes, number one gate-crasher Tion Wayne, neo-soul voyager Patrick Paige II, genre-less creative Berwyn, Brighton rap phenomenon ArrDee, American avant-garde iconoclast Moor Mother, and honey-voiced icon Nancy Sinatra.
