Northtown EP is the fabulous introduction to the sad-disco/house sounds of a 19 year old Las Vegas singer, musician, comedian, twerker and filmmaker, Shamir Bailey.
It’s hard to remember that this dude is as young as he is, as you hit play and begin to slide deep into his world of disco-inspired heartache. Bailey’s androgynous voice has me conjuring up thoughts of Hot Chips‘s Alexis Taylor crawling around naked in a room with the guys and gals of Hercules & Love Affair – a connection I am sure many of you will also make.
Yes that last track was Shamir covering Lindi Ortega‘s ‘Lived And Died Alone’
Northtown EP is out now on iTunes, thanks to GODMODE.
