Misha Teardrop Sweetheart

Misha Teardrop Sweetheart

While many choose amped-up pop punk or hip-hop to soundtrack their high-paced summer, some would rather fall asleep in the shade of a tree with their iPod. For those people, Misha’s Teardrop Sweetheart is perfect. The band’s principle duo, John Chao and Ashley Yao, were childhood friends in Taipei, they lost contact until randomly bumping into each other in New York. Part heart-tugging electro-pop ("Summersend,” "Delovedly”) and part crackly Moog record ("Anaconda”), Teardrop Sweetheart demonstrates the kind of mature consistency usually reserved for more seasoned artists.
