Shamir's ascent has been quite majestic thus far, with some standout pop singles and a nod from the BBC Sound Of 2015 list.

Now, for Rookie's 'Theme Song' series - a series that's featured Speedy Ortiz and Perfect Pussy in recent times - he's covered Nashville star Miranda Lambert's "The House That Built Me".
