Kentish singer-songwriter SHELLS has had a pretty great debut year, finding herself airplay on both BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 2 as well as performing her first ever sell-out headline show a few months ago in Camden.
Her four-track debut EP “Shapes” creates a fragile atmosphere, where the music is finely balanced – never overpowering – and the lyrics always manage to find a way to shine through.
The first track on the EP, “Jailbird” is about feeling trapped within a relationship, and the process of escaping from that. The following single in Shapes, “Gold” which was SHELLS’ first released track is the point where the EP certainly unwinds alongside “Jagwar” and “Fly” to eventually leave you in complete serenity.
We’re certainly looking forward to hearing more from the soloist, with a debut album on the way in the approaching new year.
