MICHELLE share sunny new single UNBOUND

NYC collective MICHELLE have shared their latest single UNBOUND, which was premiered as Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World, on BBC Radio 1 last night. The video was also premiered by The Fader - watch below.

Speaking on the track, the band shared: 

"UNBOUND came alive really fast. It’s about desire: the kind that oozes for the person you do want and the kind that evaporates for the person you don’t. We wanted to make something groovy and colorful, that could access nostalgia while also giving our listeners something new and danceable in a way we haven’t before."

UNBOUND is the second single to be released by the band this year and follows SUNRISE, released in July. The track has since been remixed by the likes of Leven Kali, Deem Spencer x the booyah! kids, and Arlo Parks.

SUNRISE marked the first new single from the NYC-based collective since their self-released 2018 debut album HEATWAVE. That album – a streets-and-skylines homage to their hometown – was created in just 2 weeks and self-released in 2018, seamlessly weaving together R&B-inflected pop, sleek synths, plush harmonies, and buoyant groove. Heralded by stand-out track THE BOTTOM, HEATWAVE amassed millions of streams, and has earned critical acclaim from The Fader, NME and more, as well as airplay from BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music.

Born-and-bred New Yorkers, MICHELLE is refreshingly comprised of predominately POC + queer members. The collective references equally diverse influences — Noname, Led Zeppelin, Sly and the Family Stone, Orion Sun, My Chemical Romance, SZA — all of which distill to create a cohesively diverse sound.

The group's unique stylings are the result of songwriting from Sofia D’Angelo, Julian Kaufman, Charlie Kilgore, Layla Ku, Emma Lee and Jamee Lockard with production from Kaufman and Kilgore.
