SHHE is the alter-ego of Scottish-Portuguese musician, artist and producer Su Shaw. Her self-titled debut album tracks a period of intense personal change. The resulting record is a sparse, haunting and atmospheric journey of introspection and exploration of identity that demonstrates SHHE’s ability to capture movement, change and the light and darkness that haunt the human condition. As she puts it: “Each song on the album is questioning identity, but under guises and levels.”

To question her identity, SHHE had to deconstruct hers. This involved leaving her life in Fife, including her relationship, and relocating across the River Tay. Moving to Dundee, SHHE found herself in the company of creatives who helped her widen her artistic vision.

It was important that the music was created in isolation. “I needed to go through that exercise of recording the album alone,” she explains. “Up until that point, I had been a real perfectionist. But if you’re always striving for perfection, you’ll never finish anything. I needed to put myself through that process.”

The album was also impacted by SHHE’s time in Iceland, where she began work on a project that explores the connection between sound, landscape and sleep. This experience, paired with her time spent growing up in the forests of Fife, gave the album a sonically sparse soundscape. Songs like “Emma”, which delves into the experience of losing one’s identity when embroiled in intense relationships, and “BOY”, which slowly builds like an encroaching shadow, are wide and almost glacial in their production.

The album is an encapsulation of Shaw’s breath-taking gift for wrapping carefully constructed electronic soundscapes around delicate yet self-assured vocals – lilting melodies that that linger long after they are heard. SHHE has found herself on the precipice of unlimited creativity and she’s ready to dive in head first. Her self-titled debut album is only the beginning of this journey
