Shamir’s Latest Project Is Equal Parts Dance-Worthy And Self-Reflective

by BUST Magazine

It’s safe to say that Shamir made the most out of quarantine. In March, he released his Cataclysm project, but his second 2020 offering provides a whole other glimpse into his world. The eponymously titled project is equal parts personal and poignant. The vulnerable “On My Own” delves into the complexity of emotions, while “Running” travels further into the human psyche, with a deep dive into struggles with gender identity. If there’s one important aspect to glean from Shamir, it’s that his superpower is making music you can dance to, while simultaneously making you think—a rarity in a world that celebrates one or the other. –KATHY IONDOLI
