Micachu And The Shapes - Never

Pop experimentalists Micachu & The Shapes will put out a new record this summer — their first since 2009′s Jewellery — and today the UK-based group revealed the first single from the forthcoming Never. It’s called “OK,” and it’s a buzzing, hissing exercise in the group’s deconstructive approach. Download below.

Never is out 7/23 on Rough Trade. The group will be playing Brooklyn’s Glasslands on 6/4 (tickets here) and also on 7/28 for MoMA’s Warm Up series.

  1. This song is “OK”.

  2. I don’t care all that much if the bands I listen to sound like they are doing something stylistically that no one has done before. It’s almost impossible to do, so good, original melodies are the priority. However, I think Micachu and the Shapes sound like no one else and are really onto something. Something about their attitude toward sound reminds me of Nikki Colk’s old band KaitO; they just fearlessly use what are independently ugly and abrasive noises to craft the most unlikely pop tunes.

  3. Jewellery blew my high school self away.
    It definitely made me look at the possibilities of music in a completely different way.
    If this song is any indication, Micachu will continue shattering my musical perceptions in the best way possible.
