Premiere: Lose yourself in Shahrae's woozy second single, Forget To Forget Me
With only two singles now under her belt, the Adelaide musician is stepping forward as one of 2019's most exciting newcomers.
Earlier this year, Adelaide-based musician Shahrae unveiled Awkward, a "tale of the introverted" that bid the entry of an artist bound to be among 2019's most exciting newcomers, taking a guitar-infused pop sound and intertwining it with electronic infusions to present a new, unique sound that's definitely worth checking out. Today, we premiere her second single Forget To Forget Me, and it's another take on her woozy, minimalist-esque approach to indie-pop, mixing soft guitar melodies with subtle teases of something bigger and more maximalist - particularly in the latter moments when Shahrae's climbing vocal is met with crisp smashes of percussion and gentle, but still impactful bass kicks.
"Forget to Forget Me is about someone leaving your life to start the next chapter in their life, but you don't want that person to leave you behind or forget about you," she says on the single, which if nothing else, further solidifies our hunch that the Adelaide-based musician is a powerful force to watch as we enter 2019. Take a listen to the single below, and stay tuned for more to come as she stomps towards a debut EP expected later this year.
