Mika – Dress to Express

Media alert - for immediate release

MIKA – DRESS TO EXPRESS
Single released digitally from 27/02/2014

Fresh off his performances during the 2014 Auckland Pride Festival and having undergone an extensive visit to NYC in 2013, impresario/enigma MIKA returns to the music world with his new single, DRESS TO EXPRESS, available from 27thFebruary 2014 through all leading digital retailers.

Following up from the electro-world-lounge release, Mika Versus Fashion, back in 2011, the local icon collaborates with a band of “emerging leaders” from Aotearoa – Zakk d’Larte, Hannah Martin and Jay Tewake – marking a first in Mika’s musical endeavours.

Produced by Alan Jansson (OMC - “How Bizzare”) and Jay Tewake (JGeek and The Geeks – “Maori Boy”) at Uptown Studios in Auckland, Dress To Express extols the virtues of Mika’s AROHA Project – a project that combats bullying of all forms against all orientations with its rallying cry of
Be The Change.”

Calling Mika a Kiwi icon isn’t mere hyperbole. Throughout his career he has performed for Prince Charles at Holyrood Palace, warmed up for Grace Jones in New York, and wowed audiences at an astonishing seven Edinburgh Festivals. Through his illustrious career Mika has won acclaim throughout New Zealand and thrilled audiences across the UK and US, France, Australia and the Pacific Islands, as well as Tokyo, Montreal, Havana, Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona, San Francisco and Moscow.
