Through simple riffs and poignant lyricism, SHY Martin immediately seizes our ears with her new single “Slow.” On her new song, SHY lets her vocals take the driving seat as she channels the need to take time to recover from a breakup. Enjoy:

In SHY’s own words:

“When I started writing songs I never did it without my guitar. I spent hours and hours writing on my bed with it, and if not there it was on a little pier by a lake next to our house. A few years ago when I moved to Stockholm I stopped writing songs that way. This past summer me, my brother and two of my closest friends and co-writers Nirob and Litens went to spend a weekend at my parents’ place in the countryside where I grew up. We ended up bringing the guitar everywhere we went. It was the first time in years I’d even held the guitar, but I guess going back to where it all started made me feel like nothing had really changed. ‘Slow’ was written during those days in the countryside. I picked up the guitar while we were eating breakfast one morning and started playing some chords. We were talking about how scary it can be jumping into a relationship immediately after a break up. I really felt like I wanted to keep the feeling we had when we wrote it by keeping the production simple, organic.”

SHY is currently getting ready to roll out her new EP, which will be coming out this year. More details to come.
