The finale to Shy Harry‘s brand new ‘Another Year‘ EP, ‘Freak‘ is the perfect example of their more focussed and intentional sound.

‘Freak’: Dual-life Imagery

Lead single ‘Freak‘ brings the EP to a close. Crammed full of catchy hooks, full-band harmonies & perfectly executed instrumentation. The song shines as a clear example of Shy Harry‘s lyrical transformation, coupling this new approach with heavier and edgier elements that are brought to life via electrifying front-man; Eric Bolton.

Dual-life imagery is prevalent throughout. ‘Freak‘ delves into the idea of someone who is a saint by day and a freak by night. The dark and mysterious persona emanates through the catchy chorus & demonstrates clearly why it is the band’s most heavily anticipated track when played live.

Who Is Shy Harry?

Shy Harry balance self-reflection and self-doubt, while simultaneously presenting a positive message through love and unity, attempting to bind a community of listeners who feel passionately about their own lives.

Hailing from Southern Ontario, Canadian rock band Shy Harry is made up of four veteran musicians. All with a passion for real musicianship and live-off-the-floor group work.

Following the release of their self-titled debut & follow up groove rock-inspired album ‘Yestermind‘, Shy Harry decided to change direction. With a new focus, they now create brand new catalogues of original music. Their latest release ‘Another Year‘ is a full-on rock n roll EP that encapsulates their refreshed ethos.

With a more focused and intentional sound, Shy Harry is bigger and stronger than ever before.
