Micra announce ‘5th Room’ EP, drop single ‘Doesn’t Mean A Thing’

The EP serves as the second in a trilogy being released by the band

Dream-pop duo Micra have announced the release of a new EP, ‘5th Room’, which will serve as the second instalment in a trilogy.

The announcement came today (June 1) with the release of a new single, ‘Doesn’t Mean A Thing’. It’s another woozy look into the sonic workings of the genre-bending outfit, and was written and produced alongside Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Skeggs).

Watch the euphoric and fuzzy visualiser for ‘Doesn’t Mean A Thing’ below:


In a press release, singer-guitarist Ivana Kafedjiyska referred to ‘Doesn’t Mean A Thing’ as “a stream of consciousness song” that “captures that out of body and almost disconnected feeling you get when you deny the reality of something that really affects you. She continued: “We wanted it to feel like you were a part of that internal process.”

The new single follows the release of ‘Headroom’, which marked the first taste of the forthcoming ‘5th Room’ EP. The record itself is set for release next month, and according to Micra’s guitarist/producer, Robbie Cain, “feels like a more focused body of music than [its predecessor]”.

He continued: “It has less moments that are intense and hard hitting. I think overall it feels softer but more direct. Most of the songs are just feel good music with a heavy dose of introspection if you want to dive deep. We are exploring how to do more with less parts and I think that results in something that many people can enjoy.”

‘5th Room’ will come as the second release in a trilogy announced by Micra last September. It follows the first instalment, ‘Sunday’, released in December 2021. ‘Sunday’ was supported by a handful of singles, including its title track, ‘After Dark’ and ‘Tell Me What You Need’.
