Shygirl shares Club Shy mix of “Poison”
The original version of the track appeared on Shygirl’s debut studio LP, Nymph, released in September.
Shygirl shared her first full-length studio project, Nymph, on the final day of September. After a two-month hiatus, she kicked off a short European run of shows on this past Thursday (December 1) to open an international world tour behind the album. And today (December 5), she’s shared the “Club Shy mix” of one of the record’s standouts.
The initial iteration of “Poison,” co-produced by Shygirl, Danny L Harle, and Sega Bodega, was a dance-floor ready heater built around an overdose of sub bass and a thumping synthetic drum beat. The new rendition, handled solely by Harle, extends the song by almost a minute and adds a subtly ethereal element to the action, working in tasteful tandem with Shygirl’s breathy vocal line to create a song more suitable for periods of trance and transcendence at the club than the hot-and-heavy moments the original seems tailor-made to soundtrack.
“Poison” (Club Shy mix) arrives alongside an uncanny visual treatment in which Shygirl’s face warps into strange, sometimes disturbing shapes as she performs the track. Watch it and view her upcoming tour dates below.
