Introducing: Miquela

Instagram sensation to popstar seems to be an all too familiar career trajectory of late.

What makes Miquela’s case all the more intriguing are questions surrounding her existence as a real person, with blogs speculating that the purposefully highly airbrushed images are simply part of a Gorillaz-esque creation. In truth, when listening to the two tracks released so far, both of which found viral fame on Spotify, you can see where the theory comes in. Heavily autotuned vocals with a near lack of humanity to them – they’re endearing pop songs at their core, yet glossed over with an air of surrealism. Still exciting though? You bet. Check out both below.
