Austin’s enchanting electro-pop ensemble Shy Beast followed the release of their latest single “My Stride” with the official release party Saturday night at Mohawk. Shy Beast has been a favorite around ‘The Live Music Capital’ for a few years now and it appears they’ve finally hit their stride and are breaking into a much larger market. The band saw their popularity sky-rocket after dropping their self-titled EP in November which featured hit single “Back With Me”. Most recently, Shy Beast was marked as a 2018 Black Fret grant nominee giving the band more visibility and additional advisory and financial backing.
The “My Stride” video is simple, yet stunning with Shy Beast’s leading lady Mariclaire (MC) Glaeser shining front-and-center accented by bright, neon-lit diamonds. “‘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.” The single showcases Glaeser’s commanding vocal range along with some of the most intricate guitar melodies yet from the powerful pop quintet. Check out the video below along with a few shots from the “My Stride” release party.
