MICHELLE shares a new song and video. “MESS U MADE” is a soulful track featuring harmonies from MICHELLE’s four vocalists. The visuals paired with the song are from an intimate live living room session.
“MESS U MADE” arrives after the announcement of their upcoming album AFTER DINNER WE TALK DREAMS due 28th January 2022 via Transgressive / Canvasback Music and is the second offering from the aforementioned album following “SYNCOPATE.” The new single also follows previous tracks “SUNRISE,” “UNBOUND” and “FYO“, the latter remixed with a feature from CHAI, and their debut album HEATWAVE.
MICHELLE recently announced new 2022 US tour dates with Mitski. The band also is currently on tour with Arlo Parks, and will be followed by a string of dates with Gus Dapperton this November and a UK and European headline tour in February. Tickets are on sale now.
Born-and-bred New Yorkers, MICHELLE formed in 2018 and is comprised of Sofia D’Angelo, Julian Kaufman, Charlie Kilgore, Layla Ku, Emma Lee and Jamee Lockard. The predominantly POC and queer collective mix and match the writing and production groups amongst the six of them.
The hallmarks of MICHELLE’s music—layered vocal harmonies, analog synthesizers, vibrant percussion, smoldering hooks—dominate the sonic landscape of their upcoming album, with the four female vocalists pushing the boundaries of their considerable singing talents while Charlie and Julian fine tune the production. Despite all the tinkering elsewhere, it is important to note that the vocals remain largely untouched and appear in their organic state. Songs hop across genres, from funky R&B to bedroom slow jams to amped-up beat-heavy anthems and more. The songwriting on AFTER DINNER WE TALK DREAMS has been elevated, as there is a depth and prowess at work that makes good on the promise of the band’s early songs, something they admit was learned by reflecting and allowing room for artistic growth.
