NEW MUSIC: Michelle - FYO
29 Jan 2021
MICHELLE share their first new track of 2021!
NYC 6-piece collective MICHELLE have released their first track of the new year, 'FYO'. The track speaks candidly on the groups experiences of growing up with mixed-race identities.
MICHELLE's Jamee Lockard explains, “‘FYO’ is about belonging to different worlds but feeling rejected by both. Growing up as a mixed-race minority in the US, my self concept was warped by other people telling me what I am and am not, pushing and pulling me between identities. Although my feelings of cultural dissonance still ebb and flow, now I have the vocabulary, support system, and perspective to unpack that inner conflict on my own terms. We should never give others the authority to define who we are.”
The video was released along with a music video, directed by the band's very own Emma Lee & Layla Ku.
