Neu Pick: Shy Luv ignite on ‘First Fires’

Shy Luv ignite on ‘First Fires’

The Manchester duo’s new cut is today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Shy Luv.

Shy Luv made a strong start at the tail end of last year with their ‘Shock Horror’ EP, a collection of funk-injected numbers that turned more than a few heads.

Its follow-up single ‘Time’ was even more tropical, and aimed directly at balmy summer nights and festival tents. ‘First Fires’ takes this momentum and runs with it, a house-tinged hit that doesn’t look down. Good job, it’s only up from here for Shy Luv, with comparisons to Disclosure more than justified.

The band are set to play a handful of shows with Foster The People later this month, before an Ibiza date with Dua Lipa.

View the dates and immerse yourself in ‘First Fires’ below.


09 Barcelona, Razzmatazz (with Foster The People)
11 Paris, Elysee Montmartre (with Foster The People)
12 Amsterdam, Paradiso (with Foster The People)
18 Ibiza, Ibiza Rocks (with Dua Lipa)
