Shygirl - ALIAS
6d ago

“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 rapping itself is good, but just not as good as it could be. Thankfully, that picks up on “SLIME”, which was one of the singles. Partially produced by SOPHIE, this song has an absolutely nasty beat, and the rapping is slightly better on this cut as well. “FREAK” has some super interesting distorted percussion, and the part around a minute or so is one of my favorite moments on this record. “TASTY” has some awesome reverbed synths and a great drum pattern. “LENG” also has a super nasty beat with really interesting distorted vocals on the outro, and “BAWDY” and “SIREN” are more of the same. Whether that’s good or bad is up to you, but I didn’t get anything out of the similarity personally.

Like I mentioned a couple times at this point, this EP suffers from sameness, with a lot of the tracks sounding very similar to the next. Especially considering that the songs are supposed to be about different “aliases” or sides to SHYGIRL, this project just feels like the same idea repeated, which is excusable to a point considering that SHYGIRL is quite talented and the beats on this EP go ridiculously hard. I just think that this project would’ve been much better with some variation. It may grow on me in the future, though.
