Event Details




“It's got depth, it's got drive, it's got some magic dust sprinkled on top”

Richard Kingsmill on ‘Fuzz Captain’, triple j 

“Shimmering swathes of synth and lush guitar tones bring to mind the psychedelic tendencies of

fellow Aussies Tame Impala, whilst the hushed vocal of Kafedjiyska conjures a dreamily lucid air that is wholly entrancing” – The Line of Best Fit

“Gorgeous noise pop that isn't afraid to bleed into the red,” – Clash 

“Ariel Pink and Tame Impala thrown in for a mish-mash of psych- and dream-pop you'll get lost in” – Pilerats

Micra, Sydney’s spellbinding dream-pop outfit, today release their exciting new single ‘Under My

Skin’ via Liberation Records. The duo will be playing shows in Sydney and Wollongong to

support the release Their first release since supporting Lime Cordiale on their recent national tour, ‘Under My Skin’

boasts diverse influences, marrying the underwater psych grooves of Unknown Mortal Orchestra

with the dreamy vocals of Beach House. Weaving dark lyrics and melodies with looping synths

and production techniques, ‘Under My Skin’ proves Micra are more than the sum of their parts as

it explores the idea of “learning to be comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

“It’s the realisation that everything that you feel happens under the skin (and) the fixation of time

passing, which I tend to focus on a little too much” explains the band’s singer Ivana Kafedjiyska.

“All these discomforts and thoughts are intimate sensations under the skin. Sometimes you have

to sit in a feeling and let go only by letting it in.”

The track arrives complete with a beguiling music video by Jessica Long and features serene

imagery of the band surrounded by vast desert landscapes and the setting sun. As the clip

unfurls, the psychedelic undertones of the track surface and what was once tranquil becomes

‘Under My Skin’ follows the release of previous singles ‘Chemical Freedom’ and ‘Fuzz Captain’.

The dreamy ‘Fuzz Captain’ received adds to triple j unearthed and FBi Radio as well as profiling

by tastemakers The Line of Best Fit and Clash Magazine.

Micra are a sonic experiment from Bulgarian born and raised singer/ guitarist Ivana Kafedjiyska

and Australian guitarist/producer Robbie Cain, who met by serendipitous fortune at an Unknown

Mortal Orchestra show after the ticketing Gods coincidentally sat them next to each other. That

chance meeting blossomed into a musical kinship which, after months of jamming in a friend’s

Sydney basement, led to the formation of Micra. After wooing industry at last year’s BIGSOUND,

Micra went on to perform alongside Tyler, The Creator and RÜFÜS DU SOL at Beyond The

Valley as well as recently supporting Lime Cordiale on six sold out shows across Australia.

With much more music to come, 2020 is sure to be an exciting year for the duo.
