“Alias” is the second EP from London-based SHYGIRL, who has drummed up a tremendous amount of interest in the PC Music/hyperpop community with production by and work with hyperpop artists big and small. This 7-track, 21-minute EP is chock-full of awesome beats and unabashedly horny writing. It just doesn’t feature very much variation, unfortunately.

“TWELVE” opens with some really cool distorted vocals and a great beat that fits SHYGIRL’s rapping well- the ... read more

This new creation from SHYGIRL epitomizes her future vision of popularity, and "ALIAS" is more danceable than anything she had before.

"In a nutshell, ALIAS is about sex and fucking. During its short duration, Shygirl, without any strings attached, sings all her most erotic and, by the way, strangers sexual desires. However, at no time does it really make it sound strange or does it create a certain repulsion in us. Impressively, ALIAS is a fun project. Not even the troubled electronic instrumentation, that has Oscar Scheller and SOPHIE on the production, and the undeniably explicit lyrics make you feel that, somehow, the ... read more

there's absolutely no one at shygirl's league. long before her debut ep, cruel practice, she had already made clear she was not someone to be reckoned with; the heavy beats, the sinister, dark and almost ominous twist to club music, her explosive, sexual and unapologetic lyrics, combined with her firey and powerful delivery. her unique and intimidating sound made her a clear standout in the underground scene and now, with alias, she only further cements her place

the tracks here, while still ... read more

Idk, she doesn’t seem too shy to me, really more bold than anything.

This is pretty good! Shygirl follows in the footsteps of many of her hyperpop contemporaries, discussing familiar topics of sex and more sex over loud, abrasive, catchy production. Shygirl brings a uniquely sensual style of confidence to the table, completely flipping any expectations one might have had from her name. This mostly works to success, tracks like FREAK and BAWDY are undeniable in their tone and ... read more

SHYGIRL is probably one of the only artists where I have keen interest in checking out their song lyrics. Not because they're deep or meaningful or whatever, but they're SO PLEASING and WEIRD.

I love to read out the lyrics of every song out aloud at a really fast pace and it's just so satisfying. Her writing is INSANE even though I do not understand what the hell she is exactly talking about in each song.

Every track on this experimental EP is strong and every track's production is phenomenal ... read more

The production on this EP is insane. (The cover is as well omg) The range on this project is quite remarkable. From airy vocals to hard spitting bars, Shygirl is a double threat, and these boys better watch out!

When you talk about "Next Level music" this is EXACTLY what I mean by it. Shygirl is fucking exceptional, this woman is literally not of this world. She doesn't have the right to be so GOOD, 'Alias' is definitely the mark, every song slaps harder than the other, there's a bit of everything, and I ADORE the mixing between grime and dance music. The production is by far one of the most excellent I've heard all year, the tiny details everywhere UGHHHHH. This EP makes me want to drive on ... read more

From her features by the likes of Arca and Zebra Katz alone, Shygirl has sneakily become one of my top artists of the new decade. After the incredible single “SLIME”, I could not describe my excitement for her new extended play ‘ALIAS’, and she still exceeded my high hopes.

It is easy to cast Shygirl as another spawn as the music industry’s current flavor of the month - hyperpop, but even on this short EP she explores all sorts of sonic approaches, from the video ... read more

I probably thought the album's content wouldn't be as annoying as the cover, but ...
"Siren" is kinda listenable for me, and that's it.

Fav Song: Siren

British electronic girl Shygirl's new mini-album "ALIAS" may become one of the most worthy albums of her career.
The disc mixes in an unimaginable whirlwind of sounds that let the human imagination run wild, and the lyrics of the compositions give complete freedom in their thoughts, giving flight to consciousness, emotions and feelings, the sound transports the listener to the atmosphere of the club with many experimental and ideally "weird" motives. Shygirl makes a big leap ... read more

Its good but not as good as her fantastic sounding previous debut, Cruel Practice. This one seems a little more toned down and I dig it, but I was really hoping for some bangers from her. Still pretty good though, my opinion my change with multiple listens. Also, I think Shygirl is the only one that sounds like her right now and I'm really excited to see what else she does.

Fav tracks: TWELVE, SLIME, FREAK, LENG, BAWDY, SIREN

oh my god!! from track 1 to track 7, shygirl (+sega bodega) made sure i was out of breath. once again, she dropped a collection of fist pumping bangers that progressively get better. even better than her debut ep and now i can’t wait to hear her debut album.

from my favorite to my least favorite: siren > bawdy > tasty = freak > slime > leng > twelve.

Ok isso é esquisito pra caralho, inclusive a capa é super gore, "ALIAS" foi uma surpresa muito positiva pra mim, eu nunca tinha me aprofundado em Shygirl e me arrependo muito por ter perdido tanto tempo, isso é uma das coisas mais dançantes e pegajosas que ouvi esse ano, as batidas são muito boas.
