Austin-based indie pop act Shy Beast reminds us that the best way to get over an emotional wound is to let it bleed until you’ve flushed it out of your system in “Leave Me Be.” The video is a quirky one where the band takes us into a surreal journey that is chaotically peaceful. Despite the dark honesty of the topic, the track is one sassy indie pop piece that helps you digest the truth smoothly:

In regards to the song, vocalist Mariclaire Glaeser explained that it’s about “having a wound in your heart, and deciding to let it bleed, rather than patch it up or try to cover it up with something else.”

Comprised of Mariclaire (lead vocals, synth), David Tenczar (guitar, backing vocals, synth), Andrew Bennett (lead guitar, synth, backing vocals), Jay Cesak (bass), and Drew Silverman (drums), Shy Beast first debuted their self-titled EP in 2017. “Leave Me Be” is from their latest EP Leave Me/Let Me, which was released back in Novmeber 30, 2018. The quintet has a show coming up this week so if you’re in Austin, go holla at them:
