This 1:49 minute diamond is ‘Easy’. No, it’s not the cubic zirconia from Cartier; it’s one of the stunning new tracks on the brand new album NEVER by London-based trio Micachu and The Shapes.
This group have always kept their ways firmly in the experimental category and won their way into our hearts when their blissfully catchy first single, ‘Golden Phone’, came into light. Audiences looking for something fresh and different were certainly satisfied and have been hooked ever since to their choppy, post-punk style. Makeshift cymbals, clattering drums and a heavily bashed ‘chu’ guitar played with no concern for consequence along with 25 year old Mica Levi’s distorted vocals, is what makes ‘Easy’ a firm favourite on the album.
Simply put, this album is pure perfection. Micachu and The Shapes are currently touring at various festivals this summer. Check out http://micachu.biz/ for more info (and to view some interesting new music videos).
