Of all the musical evolutions of recent years, Shamir’s is amongst the most compelling. Arriving back in 2014 with the buzz-baiting ‘On The Regular’, his progression as an artist since has brought more than the odd genuinely rewarding highlight.
‘Heterosexuality’ belongs on that roll-call too. Existing in a space between 90s alt-rock, pop and electronic, industrial noise, it’s an exploration of queerness, sexuality and identity, rejecting conformity to anything but its own rules.
Affirming, thought-provoking and living with a freedom that enriches as much as it informs, it’s a remarkable record.
