Micachu & The Shapes, the indie-pop outfit featuring Mica Levi before the musician went on to focus on their work as a film composer, are returning with a new album under a new name. Good Sad Happy Bad, named after the band’s 2015 album, will put out Shades on October 16 via the French label Textile. Check out the album’s title track below, alongside an accompanying music video directed by Tony Harewood.
Since reforming, the group have added CJ Calderwood to their lineup, with Raisa Khan on lead vocals, Levi on guitar and vocals, and Mark Pell on drums. Talking about their new album, Good Sad Happy Bad said in a statement: “Like the band name, the songs are either good, sad, happy or bad and sometimes either slow, fast, heavy or light, and sometimes cold, hot, warm or freezing, and sometimes tasty, nasty, bland or spicy.”
Mica Levi recently composed the score for a short film by photographer Nan Goldin titled Sirens.
