Music Review: Mika’s “My Name Is Michael Holbrook”


You have to feel a bit sorry for Mika. The British singer, who had a global #1 back in 2007 with Grace Kelly, wasn’t ready to be open about his sexuality at the time. It wasn’t until five years later that he finally came out in a magazine interview, but by then sales of his new music had slowed and he’d creatively retreated into writing songs for Madonna and appearing on European reality TV.

Now, as defined by the name of his new album (his real name, it transpires) he wants to make amends. Ice Cream, the first single, is groovy funk and sounds like a hit, while Tiny Love is like a mashup of every Queen song ever made. That’s a good thing, by the way.

Mika will be touring Australia and New Zealand in February, for tickets go to www.frontiertouring.com/mika.
