“I make my own rules and break everybody elses” sings MIKEY in their altruistic voice on new track ‘Love Levitation’, taken from their recent EP, Paths. The Berlin-based nightlife icon explores themes of “intimacy, embodying both genders, and living in fear of being stigmatised by society” on their latest record, and it’s a powerful collection of electronic-based pride and defiance.
MIKEY’s performance history is extensive: from small acoustic sets in Australia, to performing with Sink the Pink and creating unique looks that led to a design commission from Rihanna. House music duo Basement Jaxx even invited MIKEY in to the studio for collaboration ‘Walk the Dog’, and MIKEY has recently featured in a film for Depeche Mode’s Global Spirit Tour, directed by Anton Corbijn.
With their list of accolades forever growing, it’s no wonder MIKEY is seeking a love that “must transcend conformity” on ‘Love Levitation’ – as they champion this in both their lifestyle, and their lyrics. After supporting Hercules & The Love Affair in Europe last year, MIKEY will be back on the road this summer. Listen to ‘Love Levitation’ below, and follow MIKEY on Facebook for more updates.
