Too Attached is two siblings: Vivek Shraya and Shamik Bilgi. Vivek is a multidisciplinary artist whose album with Queer Songbook Orchestra, Part-Time Woman, was included in CBC’s Best Canadian Albums of 2017. Shamik is a producer and beatboxer who has performed in 15 countries and toured with Method Man & Redman, Bassnectar, and Tanya Tagaq.
Too Attached grew out of Vivek and Shamik’s childhood history of singing devotional songs together in Edmonton, obsessing over pop and R&B as teenagers, and informal collaborations throughout their individual decade-long artistic careers. Their first EP, Bronze, was released in 2015, which they toured across Canada while opening for Tegan and Sara.
Most recently, Too Attached were listed as one of IN Magazine’s 2018 Canadian Artists to Watch and their newest album, Angry, was described by CBC as one of “Canada’s most incisive, radical and galvanizing albums.”
