Michelle’s Dreamy Love-Struck Single ‘Syncopate’ Announces Their Album ‘After Dinner We Talk Dreams’

NYC-based six-piece MICHELLE made a name for themselves with their 2018 debut effort Heatwave. After catching the attention of artists like Arlo Parks and Gus Dapperton, MICHELLE are back to kick off a new era of music with the dreamy, love-struck single “SYNCOPATE.”

Featuring jangly guitars and a dance-ready beat, “SYNCOPATE” officially heralds MICHELLE’s sophomore album AFTER DINNER WE TALK DREAMS, which is set to drop on January 28, 2022. Speaking about the track in a statement, the band said they were inspired by the feeling of desire:

“The song at its core is about desire. Communicating your desire can feel vulnerable, so we wanted to have some fun with that and show our funky and seductive side. It really feels like we’re hitting the street for the first time by putting this song out into the world.”
