Brooklyn-based, Wisconsin-native Michelle Kim to release her first track. Composed, written, sung, and produced by her, “withering and dancing in the rain” is a Korean / English mash up about her depression packaged in an upbeat, uplifting track influenced by her favorite K-Pop and J-Pop songwriters. Every hand that touched this release, from the cover art to the vocal mixing, are fellow Asian-American creatives. 

From Press Email

The track has that bedroom indie pop tone which reminds me a bit of ESAE, OOHYO, and Yukari-era Aseul. For a first single, “withering and dancing in the rain” is solid. It has a lot of hooks throughout from the pre-chorus to the very sugary chorus. Also, michelle’s vocals match the song well and don’t sound like they’re trying to follow existing vocal trends.
