Wallice – ‘Hey Michael’

Alongside the announcement of her forthcoming debut EP ‘Off The Rails’, Wallice releases her brand new bop ‘Hey Michael’. 

Reminiscing modern dating and observing friendships, relationships, and a subtle reminder of her own self-awareness, Wallice basks in her relatable songwriting that resonates with many. ‘Hey Michael’ seeps with witty lyricisms and bedroom-pop beats and she’s unapologetic about the perfect “revenge anthem”.

Wallice explains the track, “’Hey Michael’ is a revenge anthem for anyone who has encountered a gaslighting, manipulative person. It’s what I wish I would have said to all the ‘Michael’s I have met in my life. It can be substituted by many names, we all know or have met a ‘Michael’ though. Somehow the world revolves around them and they just can’t catch a break, because they never do anything wrong and it’s usually your fault. You should have listened to your gut instinct and swiped left on this Michael. This isn’t a man-hating song, it’s just something many people can relate to. Sometimes it’s embarrassing to admit just how bad a friend, date, or romantic partner was and a lot of the time, I would just smile and laugh off stupid remarks but when I think back, I wish I had told them off.  But at the same time, my persona in the song is not the best person either. I literally say “I think I want to start a fight, which one is your girlfriend?” The whole song is funny because I am so focused on how shitty Michael is that I don’t even think about how shitty I might be as well.
