Austin’s favorite electro-pop ensemble Shy Beast will be releasing their brand new single “My Stride” on Saturday, May 19 with an official release show at The Mohawk (indoors). Darkbird will kick off the evening at 10 :30p.m. followed by Shy Beast at 11:30 p.m. and Otis Wilkins at 12:30 a.m. Grammy-award winning, New Zealand pop star Kimbra will be performing on the outdoor stage that same evening.
Led by songwriter, singer and keyboardist Mariclaire (MC) Glaeser, guitarist and vocalist David Tenczar, guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist Andrew Bennett, bassist Jay Cesak and drummer Drew Silverman, Shy Beast creates its own unique fusion of electro-pop that blends effortlessly with MC’s vast vocal range and creative instrumentation from the other bandmates.
“‘My Stride’ is a reference to the heavy feelings that come with all the different choices you are presented in life,” said frontwoman MC Glaeser. “It represents the moment of freedom you experience by simply picking a direction, or a way of being, and running with it.”
“My Stride” was recorded in Lockhart, Texas at Good Danny’s and produced, mixed and engineered by Danny Reisch (White Denim, Okkervil River, Bright Light Social Hour). The song was written by Mariclaire Glaeser and arranged by Shy Beast.
