My latest obsession is Shamir

Standard

So, I was recently introduced to Shamir. I’m now hooked- just say I’m sorta of a analog girl in a digital world (I’m a bit late on the uptake)!

I was quite intrigued by his style and then came his voice.  I’m very much a sucker for originality and Shamir defines that trait like no other.

His lyrics are both raw and simple, yet thought provoking touching on prejudices, love, acceptance and life. ..  The lad is one of the biggest pop stars of 2015 — an androgynous, super-charismatic pop star who has “no gender, no sexuality, and no f*!@# to give.”

The 20-year-old Las Vegas native recently premiered “Call It Off,” the single off his album, Ratchet.  If you don’t recognize the name Shamir, you might recognize the  song, “On the Regular,” from Android commercials.  Shamir hails from the burbs of Las Vegas- “Northtown” which happens to be the name of his first EP.  He has the kind of voice that defies genres — his charm is simply BAD ASS in my book.

Watch “I’ll never be able to love” video-https://youtu.be/Q1inHOZhWx0.

My favorite song is “DARKER”.

The first few bars are…

We’re just shells
That are dwelled
But our souls blow
Would you knew what you shouldn’t said
But for love we leave
Is our legacy
So we’ll keep at the light
And our memory
Because it doesn’t get darker
Unless you expected to….

I say “Amen” to that!

For his new album, Ratchet, Shamir signed with XL Recordings, which is a no brainer for his future as a musician.  XL, a London-based label, is a major player in the music scene of London and America. XL houses artists like FKA Twigs, Adele and Jack White.

All things unique and damn extraterrestrial, his voice played over the vintage drum machine ranks up there with Frankie Knuckles (the Godfather of House music) or Prince, is what makes him an eargasm.

Before his new found stardom he was just a high school kid with a appetite for his craft . He was in a punk band called Anorexia in high school.

Shamir- is a certified BAD ASS, just DOPE on a rope. This summers dance floors are sure to be rocking out to “Hot Mess” and “Rachet”.
