Micah Emrich Strikes Bedroom Pop Gold on New Single, "caffeine"

Quick Thoughts: Micah Emrich has quietly been putting together a really impressive body of work since he began releasing music with his debut single, Hang Ups, in January of 2020. With his latest single, caffeine, the Milwaukee-based singer-songwriter fuses elements of pop and R&B into a sweet, soothing song that I cannot get enough of. Emrich makes use of beautiful, imagery-driven lyricism, impeccable production, and his silky smooth vocals throughout this sonically rich lo-fi pop song. Throughout the track’s three-minute runtime, Emrich explores the complicated nature of following one’s passion, ultimately trying to soothe the anxiety that anyone might be feeling. It’s comforting and beautiful. Stream on Spotify:
