For three years, vocalist/keyboardist Marieclaire Glaeser (AKA MC) earned fans both locally and nationally with her quintet MCG but something wasn’t quite right. It was only last year that Glaeser adopted the new project name Shy Beast – signifying a musical maturation and a sonic shift towards dreampop. Glaeser’s impressive-to-say-the-least vocal range and carefully-crafted compositions guided Shy Beast through their debut self-titled EP and live performances ever since. Shy Beast is set to premiere their new single “My Stride” next month but you can catch them this Friday night at Geraldine’s. Shy Beast shied out of their corner just after their transformation last November with a Studio 1A performance that captured the beast in its new form track after track – not the least of which is “For Now”.
