MICHIGAN LEFT Drop Their Second Album CAPSIZE

"Originally, Capsize (the track) was written as encouragement to a friend. They were going through a really tough stretch and I wanted to let them know what they meant to me. In the context of the record, the song is a rebirth. It’s like you’ve fallen apart and it’s time to pick up the pieces. I guess that’s why we called it Capsize. It’s like you are giving yourself over to a certain kind of death, knowing that it’ll lead to new life”.

Cosmic and creative, Michigan Left have always refused to be defined to one box, and their limitless approach to music has reached its full potential in the form of their new release Capsize, their first full-length offering since 2018’s ‘Nothing Is To Color’.

A mystical journey from beginning to end, the five-piece adopt psychedelic synths and energetic rock riffs to create an album that beams with vibrancy and youth. From the soaring soundscapes of the titular track, the tenebrific tones of ‘Static Joy’ and the dainty, subdued orchestration of ‘Grey’, they have mastered the ability to encompass each band member’s talents and create a record to be proud of. 

Frontman Josh Slater explains the depth behind Capsize, quoting “Originally, Capsize (the track) was written as encouragement to a friend. They were going through a really tough stretch and I wanted to let them know what they meant to me. In the context of the record, the song is a rebirth. It’s like you’ve fallen apart and it’s time to pick up the pieces. I guess that’s why we called it Capsize. It’s like you are giving yourself over to a certain kind of death, knowing that it’ll lead to new life”.

After some time away, Michigan Left have honed their craft and explored new musical avenues, taking their own personal experiences and turning them into powerful tracks that many are sure to resonate with. For fans of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and Tame Impala, be sure to check out Capsize for a spellbinding psych-rock fix.
