Michelle Treacy’s newest EP, High Heels in the MoshPit, is the first time the songstress has truly felt herself with a new sound: Tame Impala meets Austin Powers. Intimately recorded in her bedroom closet with maximum creative freedom and minimal agenda, the left-of-center pop musician reveals an authentically fresh take on music that will undoubtedly make listeners groove and dance along.
With over 3M Spotify streams to date, Treacy’s rise began with an impromptu duet with Lady Gaga during her ArtRave tour. A major label deal soon followed with a 16 week hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in Canada. Treacy then won the second season of CTV’s series The Launch, and released singles like "Armageddon” and “Emotional”.
Comical and witty, Treacy is beloved by her fans on social media, and currently has over 40K Instagram Followers, and can more recently been seen on TikTok in stylishly funky outfits and sharing extremely fun music moments, while also providing a peak into her more tender and emotional side and speaking openly about her sexuality and what it's like being a queer artist.
Tracks like “It Feels So Good To Be Back” and “Love Every Minute” highlight Treacy’s spunky care-free lyrics that remind us to not overthink things and enjoy the present moment for what it is. On High Heels in the Moshpit, Treacy’s voice is seamlessly set to slightly left-of-center melodies infused in a variety of genres from punk to new wave–culminating in a delightful concoction for music fans of all genres.
“This is the first time I’ve ever truly felt like me while recording. This is the first time I didn’t judge myself and I just wrote what felt right. I’m bad ass, I have a lot to say and I just wanna have fun. I hope this EP makes people feel free and seen. I hope people allow themselves to let go when listening to it. It’s time to feel good, get up and dance and hug each other again,” Treacy says.
