Nouv Shy is a name that isn't going to resonate on many people's radars. In fact, the young singer/songwriter (alias Carl Boman) who hails from Sweden only has two tracks for you to get acquainted with on the whole Internet. But don't let that put you off falling completely in love with this entrancingly gorgeous song.

Everything about it screams quality, from the humming acoustic guitar, through the understated lo-fi groove and winding up on the plaintive melancholia of Carl's vocals. "Self" is about as beautiful a track as you're going to discover today, so look no further.
