shy kids, is a trio of filmmakers and musicians from Toronto. Friends who met at a university talent show who now make psychedelic Disney music; curious pop made for weirdos who still like a good chorus. They have released the albums, “Field Trips”, “Lofty!”, the visual album “in a state”, and several singles including “Backward in Love” and “i love everything”. Their most recent release “oh no!” is a dazzling 3 minute romp thru an endless slew of video games the band were playing while stuck in lockdown.
The video to go along with the song is emblematic of shy kids ability to create unbelievable film and animation. As video directors they have made videos for Shania Twain, Demo Taped, July Talk, and Prism Prize finalist Alvvays. As award winning filmmakers the band has worked for Netflix, HBO, Disney, ABC, CBC, and have won countless awards and nominations including Emmy’s, Oscars, Prism, Prize, and winning best short film and a CSA in 2013 for their genre creating short NOAH.
shy kids are currently working on new music as well as a feature animated musical akin they are calling a punk-rock-pixar film called “shylo”.
