Unapologetic and far from shy, Blane Muise aka Shygirl
uses “‘60s psycho-esque with a bounce” (Pitchfork) tracks to realise sexual desires, transgress taboo and empower. Just last month, she commanded the stage at Festival Seco
in Barcelona, flipping her signature fan and in a rare moment of sharing the stage, Shygirl welcomed Arca as a hype-womxn for her last song. Her last album, produced with Sega Bodega and titled Cruel Practice
, reworks narratives of sexual power as a mixed-race woman, re-centring on herself. “I need to be heard”, she said on Radio 6. It’s time to listen.
