Last summer, four years after Loefah first floated the idea of a Mickey Pearce album, Mickey sat down to write a mixtape of loops - a sequel to 2014's 'Up West' - but found himself in new, melancholic territory.
Less than three months later 'Michael' was written.
Ahead of the radio premiere of 'August', Mickey told Mary Anne Hobbs: "The whole album was written in a short space of time last summer... [it] just sounds like me in August 2015. I haven't written anything that sounds like it before or since."
Mickey has also developed a new live show that translates the album for the club environment. The live performance follows the arc of the record, adding layers of improvisation and a solid core of drums that place it in a club context.
Road-tested at 81 sessions in Berlin, Leeds and London, Mickey debuted the full live at Peckham Rye Music Festival earlier this month.
