Video Premiere: shn shn – ‘silk’

Ambient electro-pop producer and songwriter shn shn teams up with director Mashal Khan to create visuals for her single ‘silk’, taken from her debut EP structura. shn shn is the newest project from queer Black creator Shanika Maria as she dives into production, beat making, and sound creation. In this space, she creates meditative dance tracks with midi and live instruments, samples, and her voice. This project focuses on exploration, experimentation, genre-mixing, and self-directed practice. 

Mashal Khan on the video: “After listening to shn shn’s project, I resonated with experimental and DIY nature of the album, especially the atmosphere created in the track ‘silk’. I pictured stillness, femme energy, liberation, and joy and wanted to center those feelings in the music video.”

shn shn released her debut ambient pop EP structura on October 9th – A collection of songs with cinematic overtones, lush vocals, atmospheric noise taking you on a visceral journey. This DIY album was produced, performed, arranged, and partially mixed by herself.
