Shy Girls – “Second Heartbeat” (Stereogum Premiere)
Portland isn’t really a hotbed for R&B, but Dan Vidmar, aka Shy Girls, is working to re-write that truth. With “Second Heartbeat,” he’s unleashed a more polished version of bedroom-recorded soul and it’s an exemplar of his ability to scrub the alt-flip of the genre with its more bodily, sumptuous aspects. Vidmar is set to release his Timeshare EP next week and it’s sure to boast cuts similarly smooth and sensory. Check out “Second Heartbeat” below.
