First came the hyper-vulnerable "mask-ed" then the euphoric love buzz of "romance", now Shoeb Ahmad bares all with the long-awaited release of "quiver" - her tome to the complexities of life and acceptance.

Built upon the trinity of identity - gender, race and religion - Shoeb maps out a narrative that reflects on her state of mind, familial truths, social disconnection, relationships and personal politics with words that can change from delicate to fierce with the flick of a tongue.

Three years in the making and helped brought to life with her various musical collaborators and the mixing help of Rhys Edwards (Gwenno), Jonathan Boulet (Exhibitionist, Party Dozen), John Lee (Beaches, Lost Animal) and Lawrence English (Ben Frost, Blank Realm), "quiver" is a work that stands outside of current musical trends to be its own timeless musical statement.
