NYC-based pop project MICHELLE is redefining the indie and DIY scene with its debut release HEATWAVE. Dropped in September, the project comes down off a summer high just in time to keep you ~warm through the winter.~
The femme-forward group consists of 9 members whose roles continue to evolve as they each explore their talents in production, songwriting, and performance. Aesthetically, they could be described as a sort of Spice Girls-meets-Brockhampton, and they might even be structurally comparable to Wu-Tang, as well. HEATWAVE has been described by MICHELLE member Rix as “hifi pop r&b”, but the group’s wild dynamism makes weary the early listener of any attempts at generic self-identification.
The collective never passes up an opportunity to let us know what it means to them to take up space and claim a strong underground presence. MICHELLE is determined to make their voices heard, having already put on a sold out show, at Brooklyn Bazaar on Black Friday promoted by Invertebrate Music.
