In 2017, Shy Beast (formerly MCG) re-introduced itself and offered its complex and appealing music. In the latest single, “My Stride,” it demonstrates its power. Shy Beast hails from Austin but plays to the entire world.
The music showcases Mariclaire Glaeser’s immense vocal range and tones of diamond clarity. Her voice is feminine but also liberated and absolutely commanding of the songs. The guitars of David Tenczar and Andrew Bennett are undeterred in growing the forest of melodies in which Glaeser sings. Drew Silverman’s unmistakable drumming guides us through the musical abundance and back again, all hits, no misses. Farther down in the sonic underworld, Jay Cesak’s bass rhythms don’t wait for verses, choruses or instrumental breaks. They continue to call until we become the monster and dance with the beast.
We are working closely with Shy Beast through our Artist Development Program and are excited to feature them as the November Artist of the Month. Look out for their new EP coming November 24, and celebrate with the band that night at Spiderhouse Ballroom.
