‘Revelations’ sparkles with invention.

'Album' of 'the Week'


Label: Father/Daughter
Released: 3rd November 2017
Rating: ★★★★

“Music is my therapy,” claims Shamir. Six months on from the release of second album ‘Hope’, it’s easy to see why he’d see it in such terms. The start of a manic episode that ended up with a week on a psych ward, by the time he arrived in Las Vegas he only had the guitar he’d travelled with, a bass and a drum sampler. They say creativity comes from limitation - if that’s true, it’s no wonder ‘Revelations’ sparkles with invention.

Described as “a journal I’m sharing with the world”, it proves that Shamir’s talent will shine through no matter what life throws. Lead track ‘90s Kids’ may concern itself with the struggles of a generation, but as it dances in the dark, it can’t help but offer up a defiant burst of light. Every cloud has a silver lining - this one is made of solid gold. Stephen Ackroyd
