I spy with my little eye… Mikhael Paskalev. The charismatic Scandinavian has already charmed his way throughout his native homeland, inciting sing-a-longs of a cult-like quality along the way, and now it’s Australia’s turn to fall under his spell.
Albeit just beginning, the young Norwegian/Bulgarian’s success story started with the release of his first ever single ‘I Spy’, which became a platinum-selling smash hit in Norway after winning a national award for Best Unsigned Act. What followed was Mikhael’s formal debut into cyber society, armed with nothing but his trusty Y-fronts, and some of the best legs in the business.
Drawing inspiration from names such as Paul Simon, The Shins, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Mamas and the Papas and The Everly Brothers, Mikhael Paskalev combines the pop sensibilities of Scandinavia with the gypsy sway of Eastern Europe… with a subtle twang of alternative country thrown in for good measure. While undeniably catchy, Mikhael never strays from the raw and shamelessly raucous soundscape he and producer wonder-kid Joe Wills have created, and it’s better that way.
