Today MICHELLE unveil their stunning new single SUNRISE. The song marks the first new single from the NYC-based collective since their self-released 2018 debut album HEATWAVE. Listen here.
The single arrives alongside an official music video, animated by New York artist Kohana Wilson, with the single’s artwork created by fellow NYC creative Niko Chang.
Of the track, the band shares:
"SUNRISE holds some kind of a summer air, but more so a longing for someone who could never really show up. A sentiment as sticky, sweaty, and fleeting as summer. Sunrise is as bittersweet as it is groovy. We’re grateful that the first song we’re releasing since HEATWAVE gets to be one we've held on to, sang, rewritten, and lived with for so long."
Today’s new music comes on the heels of recent video releases from the six-piece – including a pair of performance videos for HEATWAVE track THE BOTTOM, recorded during a show at The Dance + live from Atlantic Records Studio in New York.
In May, THE BOTTOM received the remix treatment from Rosa Walton of Let’s Eat Grandma, as well as a cover from labelmate Arlo Parks. Earlier this year, MICHELLE released a cover of their own, by way of a rendition of Roberta Flack’s Killing Me Softly.
