Stream: Shamir – Tryna Survive

ShamirShamir Bailey, a 21 year old singer and songwriter, broadly acknowledged as Shamir, grew up in North Las Vegas.

He is active in the music scene since 2014, when he released his debut EP, Northtown, which was positively acclaimed by reviewers. In the end of the same year he signed to XL Recordings.

Beyond doubt, he is one of the best fresh voices currently and just today he let out a Ray- Ban short film called “Sheep Plays Wolf”, which displays the strange ways people can be brought together through acts that at first glance seem to be damaging.

Shamir also plays a leading role in the film, performing live with the group “Shamir And The Walrus Whiskers” their song “Tryna Survive”.

It’s a brilliant, groovy and uplifting track that I can’t get enough listening to on repeat.

Here are the track and the short film:
