Dreamy indie-pop outfit Shy Beast has teamed up with The Huffington Post to exclusively premiere their new video for "Back With Me." 

"Back With Me" is the first single to release off of Shy Beast's debut self-titled EP, which is set to drop on Nov. 17. 

Produced by Danny Reisch (White Denim, Okkervil River, Bright Light Social Hour), Shy Beast's upcoming EP boasts infectious, synth-layered tracks reminiscent of Alvvays, Tennis, and Chairlift. Watch "Back With Me" on The Huffington Post, here: goo.gl/kkVNbQ.

Directed by Brittany Reeber, "Back With Me" is the first music video to debut since Shy Beast's inception. 
Mariclaire (MC) Glaeser said, "I really wanted to use light and movement to convey an emotional arc, and was intrigued by the idea of limiting myself to a small platform within a large warehouse. I was interested in the juxtaposition created by feeling alone in a vast space, but at the same time being closely surrounded by a cluster of moving figures."
Shy Beast was born an adult in 2017. 

The band simply transformed naturally from its previous moniker, MCG. 

That prior musical entity built songs and a following, and as in all youthful things, it embraced life and sang about it, but it never, ever, clicked the box entitled "I agree to the terms of service." 

The beast is shy because expectations are high. 

The abundant talent in the band, already with demonstrated results, stokes those expectations. 

The only real internal concern is how best to express all the avenues and channels of the musical potential.

The musicians are: Mariclaire (MC) Glaeser - leader of the band, songwriter, singer, and keyboardist. Both shy and beastly, she is the creative force of the group. Her vocal range is huge, and she uses it to captivate audiences, and claim her place as the alpha in her pride of musical men. 

Her creature companions include David Tenczar - guitarist and vocalist - the man for whom there is no melody too complex to master. His guitar work is flexible, his harmonies malleable. 

Andrew Bennett is a guitarist, keyboardist, and vocalist. He projects a gentle, purring vibe on stage, conveying the impression that less is more. 

Jay Cesak (aka Jayzilla) is the almighty monster of the bass clef. 

A commanding presence near the back of the stage, Cesak creates realms of transportive sonicity with drummer Drew Silverman. 

Silverman is certainly the King of Beat. 

Each strike of a drumhead, each stroke of chimes, each scratch across the audience's face, gives back full value and energy in Silverman's construction of Shy Beast's musical environments. 

Shy Beast is set to release their debut self-titled EP on Nov. 17.
