Shine - Capital S (prod. Louie)
Shine shows that his talent is not limited to just acting. In addition to his career on the silver screen, which was awarded a Golden Calf for 'Best Actor' ( De Belofte van Pisa (2019), the young Amsterdammer has been working on his own music for several years now. The name “Shine” is buzzing been in town for a while.. Since he was fourteen, Shine has been an avid writer and for the past six years he has developed into a word artist.
In early December, the time has come to share Shine's first musical project called "Mens van Wie" with the world parts. An EP heavily influenced by where Shine was born, raised and still lives: the Amsterdam Nieuwmarkt neighborhood. A vibrant environment where you have to stand firm. Yet a recurring theme on the EP doubt, doubts that come with being young and the search for who you are. The urge to keep everyone happy and the hard realization that that is not possible. This red thread is intertwined through the seven songs. What also connects the songs on the EP is the use of samples from the forgotten Dutch music. Shine takes you from his sensitive heart to Amsterdam boastfulness and back again.
Today the first single “Capital S” will be released, accompanied by a clip directed by Shahine himself. The video clip for "Capital S" is set in the Amsterdam Nieuwmarkt neighborhood and is played through a Snorricam Shine followed closely. The track “Capitol S” is partly about losing a child enthusiasm, a feeling Shine becomes aware of when walking through the Nieuwmarkt streets where he used to play as a small child and where he discovered everything for the first time.
