Artist Info

Micachu & the Shapes

Micachu & the ShapesPowered by Audioscrobbler™Rough Trade Records are delighted to announce the signing of 21 year old Mica Levi AKA Micachu. Her debut album ‘Jewellery’ is released on Rough Trade Records on March 9th.
So, a quick introduction, Bjork is said to be a fan of Micachu and can probably identify with another artist brave enough to take pop music into entirely uncharted territory. Micachu is largely inspired by Harry Partch who famously used an array of customized and home made instruments. These included a xylophone made of light bulbs, a ‘Cloud Chamber’ made out of pyrex dishes that could not only be played musically but detect particles of ionizing radiation and a series of highly complicated 44 stringed instruments.

Similarly Micachu uses a modified guitar played with a hammer action called a ‘chu’ and a bowed instrument fashioned from a CD rack. She also uses improvised instruments, such as glass bottles or a vacuum cleaner.
The album has already garnered some very favorable press attention, observe:

“Jewellery is an extraordinary introduction to a unique new talent” Q

“An ear-bashing of crazy-paving beats, junk-shop punk, electronic drones and deceptively mellifluous bedsit pop” The Times
“Staggeringly inventive, madly capricious, and utterly unpredictable, this is pop for the 2010s” Dazed & Confused

“Ridiculously talented” The London Paper

“Unbridled eccentricity” NME
