Mica Levi, known by her stage name Micachu (Born 1987 in Surrey, United Kingdom), is an English singer, songwriter, composer, and producer. She is classically trained and is best known for experimental music in a variety of genres.(Wikipedia Micachu)

Micachu and the Shapes
Levi formed a band called The Shapes, which includes Raisa Khan on keyboards and Marc Pell on drums. They signed to Accidental Records who released their debut single "Lone Ranger" in May 2008, followed by "Golden Phone" in August 2008.

Their debut album, Jewellery, produced by influential electronic musician Matthew Herbert, was recorded around Mica's composition studies at Guildhall School. Advance copies of the record reached the press in early 2009, and generated positive feedback. Björk was even spotted dancing at an early gig, and approached Mica after the show.
In the wake of this growing buzz, Micachu and the Shapes were signed to Rough Trade, who released Jewellery on March 9 2009. Drowned In Sound consequently hailed the record as "thrillingly improbable pop made by a grade-A maverick."
The album was strongly-tipped to be nominated for 2009's Mercury Prize
Its omission from the shortlist sparked widespread criticism, perhaps best summed up by the Guardian: "but what about...Micachu and the Shapes, and all the others we were convinced would make the grade?"
Micachu and the Shapes toured widely throughout the UK in 2008, including performances at Bestival and V Festival. The band played abroad in South Africa and in the US at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City and SXSW in Austin, Texas. They also performed on the Main Stage of the Siren Music Festival at Coney Island in Brooklyn in July 2009. Touring is set to continue throughout Europe and North America in the summer and fall of 2009.

Micachu & The Shapes video premiered...
Here is a first for A video premiere by another artist! Micachu & the Shapes have a new song Turn Me Well which is released 15th of September on RoughTradeRecords

For us MWC of, who have actually a bit of an attention span, remember Björk talking about Micachu on NPR not so long ago when she said:
"I saw her in London, in June, a year ago and I was really excited about her. I thought it was that sort of 'do it yourself' approach, with all these little guitars and her attitude was really fresh… think it's really, really fun. (She)is a bit of a prankster really, isn't she?"
So when asked if this would be a possibility for Micachu it as a straight yes from Björk.

And now Micachu is playing the Icelandairwaves festival in Reykjavík in October, and the video being premiered on is there a connection? We like to think so!

Ladies and Gentlemen, we present to you: Turn Me Well by Micachu and The Shapes.
