Shy Girls - "Trivial Motion"

It's our great pleasure today to release Shy Girls' blissful ode to nihilism "Trivial Motion" and announce the forthcoming debut album Salt, due out Jan. 20.

Singer Dan Vidmar offered some context on "Trivial Motion" to Complex, who premiered the track:

"I had been plucking that doo-wop chord progression on my guitar for months and finally found the song for it. And I don’t know why but there’s something kind of sad about that chord progression to me. A lot of the new album is about my struggle coming to terms with absurd constructs and this song is definitely an example of that."

Pre-order Salt now on vinyl — both standard black and limited edition red — and digitally.

You can catch the album live on Shy Girls' winter tour, dates below.
