Birch is the Brooklyn-based musical project of Michelle Birsky and Mat Towles.
Their latest single ‘Nobody Lives Forever’ is a pertinent track written about how fear keeps us divided.
Birsky’s light vocals carry lyrics of a heavy nature as she sings about policies used to terrify immigrants, women, the disabled, and the poor, but the message (represented in the building synths throughout the track) is clear – we must unite and spread love.

Norweigian artists, Röyksopp and SusanneSundfør are no strangers to working together, having collaborated on ‘Running To The Sea’ and ‘Save Me’.
New number, ‘Never Ever’, is a highly danceable, electronic track, seeing Röyksopp return in full force.
“The track has its own cosmos and its own place.” says Svein Berge. “The whole idea of us going away from the whole album concept was that we do have many musical expressions that we want to do,” says Torbjørn. “One of them might be a club track, but we don’t necessarily want to do an album of it. It’s that way with ‘Never Ever’ – we love it, but we don’t need 12 tracks like it.”
Sounds like: Robyn, Digitalism, Fever Ray, Little Boots, Goldfrapp
80’s music lover, RALPH, is questioning whether there is ‘Something More’ in her new track, asking whether the grass is always greener?
“‘Something More’ was inspired by Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show ‘Master of None’,” explains RALPH, continuing “The show honestly narrates the existential issues faced by young adults now. Consumed with social media and dating apps, we’re obsessed with the idea of something more or someone better, often leading us to sabotage the good things we have.”
