Shy Girls Announces Debut Album “Salt,” Out 1/20 on Hit City USA, Premieres 1st Single “Trivial Motion”

Shy Girls, the Portland/LA songwriter, vocalist, and producer Dan Vidmar, announced his long-awaited debut full-length Salt today. The album will be released on January 20, 2017 via Hit City U.S.A. and follows Vidmar’s acclaimed 4WZ mixtape and Timeshare EP. Complex announced the news this morning and also premiered the transcendent new single “Trivial Motion.”

“From its sweeping John Hughes synths to the tender lyrics beset by an earworm of hook, two things are guaranteed: you will be in your feels, and you will have it on repeat,” Complex writes. “Vidmar has refined his ethereal, lush sounds into something magnetic and undeniable.”


“Trivial Motion” follows previously released single “I Am Only A Man,” which Zane Lowe premiered on Beats 1 this summer. The Fader hailed the track as “emotionally raw” and Nylon wrote, “Praise be to the music goddesses for the return of this angelic voice.”
