the specifics of r&b upstart michl’s identity are still floating hazily around in the ether, but we do know this: the california native made a profound entrance last october with his debut “kill our way to heaven,” and his newest single is another massive step in the right direction.  on “when you loved me least,” michl resolutely pushes past the fragmented remains of a romance in search of self-empowerment in tandem with the ebbs and flows of a rich bass line pulsing underneath shimmering synth textures and a bevy of critical countermelodies.  take a listen below.
