This Week’s Model — Shygirl, “Cleo”

On her new single “Cleo,” Shygirl takes the groove seriously. Augmented by strings, the song locks in to a smooth house beat as Shygirl claims the name Cleopatra and coos “You got me feeling like a movie star.” The track has a icy-cool authority to it, delivering an electronica grind where the gears experience no friction, even when Shygirl drops a arched-eyebrow rap in the middle. The whole thing hums along, promising a night of flashing lights and cascading streamers that feels like it will — or should — never end.
