Mika is one of the most exciting new artists I have heard about in a long time. Download this song or listen to the clips of his brilliant songs on his lovely website
, and you will understand. Born in Beirut, he has lived in Paris, Kuwait and now London, where, aged 23, he has signed a major label record deal and is soon to release the single Relax Take It Easy, which has already received Radio 1 airplay and since it sounds like a mix of Erasure and current no.1 act Scissor Sisters, it's very likely to be a hit. But this is just the tip of the iceberg, as Mika has a wide range of songs just as good and even better, including this fun-filled number which again sounds Scissor Sisters-esque but most of all very reminiscent of Queen. It's very dramatic, opera-esque, jolly and catchy - you'll soon be singing along in your highest pitched voice, and of course doing lots of silly dancing (the only kind of dancing worth doing anyway). Look out for his album Life In Cartoon Motion coming soon!
