Introducing…Shamir

Best known for 2015’s indie-pop hit “On the Regular,” 24-year-old Shamir Bailey has spent the past two years redefining himself along the lines of how he started — as a guitar-slinging rock ‘n’ roller. He layers his biting falsetto on top of aggressive, buzzing punk and rock, with bits of folkie strumming.

Shamir‘s recent music is intense and heavy, but it’s built on joyful, familiar noise, so it has a catharsis akin to what Husker Du was doing 35 years ago. The Philadelphia-based artist will drop his newest full-length on 2nd October, preceded by new single ‘I Wonder’– the follow-up to recent drop ‘On My Own’.
