Shy Girls Premieres New Track “I Am Only A Man” With Zane Lowe on Beats 1 & The Fader‏

Zane Lowe heralded the return of Shy Girls — Portland/Los Angeles-based singer/producer Dan Vidmar — yesterday, premiering the artist’s powerful new track “I Am Only A Man” on Beats 1.


Vocalist and producer Dan Vidmar, a.k.a Shy Girls, first came to attention in 2013 with his slow burning, sax-tinged single “Under Attack.” In the fall of 2013 he released his first EP, Timeshare, with boutique label Hit City USA, which featured seductive electronic pop jams such as “Second Heartbeat.” Shy Girls quickly started garnering attention and acclaim from an array of artists, producers and tastemakers. Vidmar has since collaborated with dance music heavyweights like Cyril Hahn, ODESZA and Jagwar Ma. He’s also toured clubs across the country in support of artists such as HAIM, Little Dragon and Grammy award­-winning R&B singer Maxwell. In winter of 2015, Vidmar self-released a mixtape, 4WZ, featuring his favorite collaborators in the realms of R&B and hip-hop (Tei Shi, Rome Fortune, Antwon and Junglepussy).

Vidmar returns with “I Am Only A Man,” an electrifying piece of cinematic avant-soul. The single offers a 4:10 glimpse into the next evolution of Shy Girls’ material, much of which takes a detour towards the progressive. Crash cymbals, detuned pianos, guitar jams, and modulated passages mark a clear evolution from Vidmar’s previous material. Shy Girls’ newest body of work is as-of-yet unnamed but is expected to be released in 2016.
