Shannen James released Arrows, her debut EP, on Friday 25 September. The 6-track collection included Shannen’s first two singles ‘Collide’, her 2019 debut, ‘Something In The Water’, and the bright title track ‘Arrows’ and latest single ‘Seventeen’.
Dancing between vulnerable verses and a big singalong chorus, ‘Arrows’ is striking guitar-pop moment. Both sun-drenched and melancholic, ‘Arrows’ threads memories of introspection together into a road-trip ready, empowering anthem, showcasing Shannen as an extremely powerful songwriting force.
Recorded with up-and-coming producer and good friend Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis, Angus and Julia Stone) in a home studio on the outskirts of Melbourne, Arrows EP is a quietly confident collection of songs, written by Shannen over the course of a few months. The EP is a fantastic introduction into Shannen’s sparkling world, where pop is reimagined into something brimming with substance, warmth and of course, catharsis.
‘Arrows’ follows Shannen’s recent single ‘Collide’ and her debut ‘Something in the Water’, both of which were embraced by both new fans and radio & streaming platforms – with adds across triple j, triple j unearthed and to-date, a combined over 2 Million Spotify streams.
Shannen has supported artists such as G Flip, Men I Trust, CLEWS & more.
