The East Coast alt-pop collective MICHELLE just dropped their newest 2-track single SIDE DISHES. And we are giving you an exclusive first look! The two brand new songs are called “SEA SHANTY” and “FOOL 4 U”. The single follows just a couple of months after the band’s critically-acclaimed sophomore album AFTER DINNER WE TALK DREAMS, released in March of this year. Billboard just ranked it among its Top 10 Pride Albums of 2022.

The musician power combo is reviving the sea shanty trend and we are so here for it! Let’s be real, the pirate music era of TikTok is unmatched. There is something so captivating and pleasing about the rhythmic sing-song. The mystical, layered vocal harmonies in “SEA SHANTY” is reminiscent of siren songs. This tune quickly became one of my new favorites after the first listen, now I’ve got it running on loop (who else can relate?).

“‘SEA SHANTY’ is a tense, pensive addition to ADWTD. Maybe a daydream, or a nightmare, the song soundtracks the calm before the storm – the moment before a journey, the moment after a sobering realization. ‘FOOL 4 U’ offers something bittersweet. Sitting in the kind of love that holds you – in the kind of love that suffocates you. A song for the tenderness you hate to love, and once loved to have.”


“FOOL 4 U” is that sweet love song you find headlining your favorite rom-com sitcom. Let the tune roll over you like smooth honey comforting your soul as you daydream about your crush.

MICHELLE is a POC and queer collective of 6 born-and-bred New Yorker musical geniuses, founded in 2018. Sofia D’Angelo, Julian Kaufman, Charlie Kilgore, Layla Ku, Emma Lee, and Jamee Lockard mix and match the writing and production of their music amongst the six of them. That’s what I call a group of insanely talented people who are each all-rounder talents.

Friends rejoice! The band has announced a headline run set for September of this year, so we’ll get a chance to catch them live. Stay tuned for more information on your new favorite band and remember to follow Glasse Factory for all the exclusive music content fresh off the press!
