If you want some beat-driven, but really laid-back music (with a message) on this Sunday morning, just have a listen to the latest single from Connecticut-born, NYC-based, indie-pop artist, singer-songwriter, Birch. The single is called Spelling Lessons.
Birch says it’s about it’s about “institutionalized sexism and my experience as a girl. I hope it resonates with you!”
Birch, aka musician and producer, Michelle Birsky, produces music that passionately deconstructs societal norms. With an extensive knowledge of music production, and live instrumentation, Birch puts a synth-driven twist on tracks reminiscent of Bon Iver and St. Vincent.
Releasing music and making waves in the Brooklyn scene for a few years now, she is raising the female voice in society, and brands her music as feminist synth-pop. Female empowerment and gender equality are two causes very important to Birch. She often participates in marches and protests, donates regularly to Planned Parenthood and strives to use her platform to make a difference in the community.
Birch is not afraid of using her voice in a positive, impactful way. Her record, femme.one, is set to release everywhere just about now.
