I still remember the exact moment I first heard MIKA. It was about five years ago, and I was at a friend’s house. She pressed play on Relax, Take It Easy and I was hooked. If you are new to MIKA, you will likely remember this moment for years to come, because Live Your Life is just as memorable and about ten times catchier. Atop his own vibrant, clapping boardwork, the British singer/songwriter/producer does the pop version of a “middle finger to the haters” anthem, turning in a bubbly, inspirational vocal performance. Live Your Life, released along with its official visuals, is MIKA’s first feature since November’s Origin of Love. No announcement has been made regarding a new album, but those who’d like to their their life with more MIKA can purchase last year’s The Origin of Love via iTunes.
