Micachu And The Shapes debut new material during Glastonbury gig

Band get fans dancing at the Park Stage

Micachu And The Shapes debuted several new and rare songs during a feedback-drenched set on Glastonbury‘s Park Stage today (June 28).

Their noon set saw a group of hardcore fans dancing to the band’s brand of percussive pop, while many more watched while basking in Worthy Farm‘s hot weather.

Singer Micachu‘s Yoko Ono-esque screaming struck a nerve with the crowd, particularly on tracks like ‘Guts’, which saw her screech into her microphone while her two-piece band played on behind her.


“Thank you so much for coming!” she beamed, before debuting new song ‘Long Time’.

Pausing briefly to tune her trademark acoustic guitar, Micachu followed the track with fan favourite ‘Curly Teeth’.

Micachu And The Shapes played:

‘Eat Your Heart’
‘Just In Case’
‘Low Dog’
‘Long Time’
‘Curly Teeth’
‘Golden Phone’
