Brijean – Shy Guy
We are huge fans of Cali duo Brijean, comprised of much thought after percussionist Brijean Murphymulti-instrumentalist Doug Stuart. The duo is announcing their new EP Angelo, with the irresistibly catchy “Shy Guy,” out August 5th on Ghostly International (pre-order/pre-save.)
Ultimately, the emotive “Shy Guy” serves as a motivational anthem for the wallflowers among us. Murphy sets the mood as follows:
“We are in junior high, we’re on the dance floor, what’s going down, who is dancing, who is not, how are we gonna make them dance?” The narrator, the MC, hypes up the room as conga-driven rhythms bounce between languid synth and guitar lines. “Show me how to move…I feel something…I know you feel it too,” Murphy sings sweetly, calling back to the opening lines of Feelings, and this time the audience chants it back.
Listen to “Shy Guy,” our Song Pick of the Day:
