MAYBE SHE'S JUST "AWKWARD", MEET SHAHRAE

March 11, 2019

 

Such a relatable song. "Awkward" tells the story of resisting the urge to conform to social norms and just admitting “maybe I’m just awkward”. When first feeling like a folk song, "Awkward" progresses into the hook with quirky bass and fun arp and filtered chords to bounce around the vulnerable vocals. It's indie pop but not over the topic, still quite stripped down and focused on her vocal tone.

 

This singer-songwriter from Adelaide, Australia is influenced by Billie Eilish, Lorde, Twenty one pilots, Mallrat, E^ST and Amy Shark. Hey we've blogged about fellow Aussie, E^ST!

 

"Awkward" dropped about a month ago via Rogue and will be amongst a further four songs released from an upcoming EP. The EP is a ‘heart on your sleeve’ recounting of busker Shah-Rae Weaver’s experiences of friendships, loved and lost.

 

I'm into the image and sound thus far and look forward to the Aussie's debut EP. Don't sleep on Shahrae!
