Shamir Bailey, a 19-year-old musician from Las Vegas, grew up not on the strip but in the desert, right across the street from a pig farm.

Like many people his age, Shamir listens to all kinds of music, and sees no difference between Taylor Swift and Mac DeMarco. He played in a punk band called Anorexia, and taught himself guitar by learning old country songs. Shamir can be exuberant, and his joy can be infectious. He can also sing of loneliness – and make us all feel less alone. “Rarely do debuts sound so certain” - Pitchfork (Best New Track), “Early contender for floorfiller of the year” - NME.
