In 2008 the 21 year old released two limited edition 7" singles, a grime mixtape and scored an instrumental piece for the London Philharmonic Orchestra which was performed at the Royal Festival Hall and played at the BBC Electric Proms which included a varied range of guests including Oasis, Goldfrapp and Burt Bacharach(!). Her name was Mica Levi AKA Micachu.
Coming straight out of the East End of London is one of the freshest acts to emerge on the indie/alternative scene in recent years. Micachu (Mica Levi) with backing from The Shapes (Marc Pell - Drums, Raisa Khan - Keys & Electronics) are a treat to behold.
Their rawkus pop sound is utterly infectious and is pricking ears around the world. Absorbing electro-pop, wonky rhythms and edgey Brit Rock within stunning production is garnering them critical acclaim across the board.
Micachu’s debut album Jewellery released early in 2009 has been described as "an extraordinary introduction to a unique new talent". Little wonder then that Micachu has already won a fan in experimental-pop pioneer Bjork.
This new band of 21 year olds are about to cause major impact..

“Staggeringly inventive, madly capricious, and utterly unpredictable, this is pop for the 2010s” - Dazed & Confused
“Unbridled eccentricity” – NME
