During October of 2014 Shy Girls hit the road supporting Little Dragon, just shy of a year from releasing their debut EP Timeshare. Keyboardist Akila fields took photos along the way, gracing us here with an expectedly beautiful and minimalist view of life on the road:
These photos are a diary of our two week tour with Little Dragon. We started in NYC, traveled through many familiar and unfamiliar cities and towns, ending in Oakland. Tour can feel like one long drive with a lot of sitting around. But we try to find ways to break up the monotony (i.e. Mario Kart, whiskey, inside jokes, Yelping the closest Whole Foods, constantly checking our phones). Here is a peek inside our world for that two weeks.
