Shygirl Is Tearing Up the Club to This Playlist


This is SOUND ADVICE, a weekly destination for playlists curated by Interview’s friends, enemies, and lovers. Over the past few weeks, we’ve gathered playlists from serpentwithfeet, UNIIQU3, and Chelsea Wolfe. This week, we’re hitting the club with Shygirl, the British musician whose newest EP Club Shy has us ready to let loose. The record is a six-track sample of Shygirl’s original flavor of smutty, grime-inflected dance music, named after the eponymous club night that’s brought East London nightlife vibes to revelers worldwide. For SOUND ADVICE, she gives us a taste of Club Shy while revealing her musical red flags, go-to studio fashions, and tequila orders.
