The past two years for Shallou have seen a variety of successes including hit EP “The Long Way Home,” led by a 2021 debut with “Heartaches,” which saw support from key tastemakers like Sirius XM Chill and Radio One. After exploding into the festival circuit in 2022 with his solo-hybrid performance, he’s released remixes for Lexi Jayde’s viral hit “drunk text me,” “Saint” by Kygo signee Forester, the US Alternative Radio charting hit “Clarity” by Vance Joy and a number of collaborations with ayokay, Sultan + Shepard released via This Never Happened, and Singapore-based MYRNE on Astralwerks.
His talent knows no bounds, and he’s kicking off 2023 strong with not one, but two singles – “See You” & “Feel So Lonely“. “See You” is backed by fluttering percussion accompanied by glistening synths and angelic-type vocals. The song then explodes into a full blown masterpiece of dance music, with waves of catchy pitched vocals and a thumping bassline. It’s unexpected yet fits perfectly.
“Feel So Lonely” maintains the energy of the first single, loaded with synth stabs that spray all around your ears, while the well-placed vocal chops serve as another instrument entirely, providing a structure that creates an intoxicating rhythm. But even within the intensity of the music, there’s somehow still a mellow and soothing energy that persists, and that’s classic Shallou.
Shallou continues to amaze us with how far his creativity can go – it’s hard not to be inspired by him. Check out the singles below!
