Mychelle – Someone Who Knows (FAMM)
Hackney-born singer, songwriter, and guitarist Mychelle presents her sophomore EP Someone Who Knows. Across six tracks, Someone Who Knows spans sounds and influences from indie-pop, acoustic folk, R&B, and soul. The new project arrives nearly a year after her critically-acclaimed debut EP Closure, which garnered praise from The Fader, CLASH, The Independent, DORK, The Line Of Best Fit, Euphoria Zine, M-Magazine, and Noctis. On the meditative yet uplifting song “Pressure,” Mychelle said “I wrote the song during lockdown. A time when it was easy to feel like you weren’t doing enough. I kept thinking about what I needed to tell myself and I realized, there’s no need to apply so much pressure on myself. I just need to be and not allow myself to be so consumed by everything around me.”

Tourist’s Inside Out is a “dance album about death, and perhaps more importantly life,” he states. “In April 2020, I lost one of my closest friends very suddenly. It was also the month I found out I was going to have a daughter. My impulsion was not to write introverted and solemn music, but instead, I found myself trying to write music that brought me joy.” Listen to the tender and uplifting work from Tourist in Inside Out, out everywhere now.
