Album Review: Heterosexuality by Shamir

Album: Heterosexuality
Artist: Shamir
Release Date: February 11, 2022
Label: Antifragile Music
Favorite Tracks:

  • Gay Agenda
  • Cisgender
  • Cold Brew
  • Nuclear


The latest album from Shamir has an industrial sound that underscores the frustrations and rage of queer people suffering continuous trauma and indignities.  Much like last week’s artist Mitski, Shamir has shrunk back from the spotlight of fame. Lyrically the songs deal with hopelessness and harsh introspection.  Above all this is Shamir’s powerful voice which asserts his refusal to conform to expectations.

Rating: ***1/2
