Hot of the release of two EPs in the past year, L.A.’s Superhumanoids have a new 7″ record out on White Iris.
“Mikelah” is a slow-burning electronic jam with a hazy melody capturing that current mid-summer feel. The distant male vocals of the verse’s are counterbalanced by a lofty female vocal in the chorus, but the best part is when the two voices come together in harmony at the end.
By the time it’s over, it feels a little anticlimactic. There’s a lot of buildup, but not much catharsis to this tune. Still, “Mikelah” is a worthwhile song for a hot Summer night.
