"Her distinctive Electro-pop pushes the boundaries of art & sound.
A spectacle worth shouting about"
- The Music.com.au
"Michelle Xen is doing all the right things to bring the art back into performing artist [with] a flair for creating a performance almost as awesome visually as it is musically."

"Michelle Xen keeps coming with these angular neon jams. If you dig 80s influenced synth pop then check it out."
Dave Ruby Howe, triple j
“[Michelle Xen] exudes an accomplished grasp of modern electronic pop… and offers the kind of cutting-edge hooks established pop stars would bid high for”

With equal parts dark & light, Michelle Xen’s music soars and dips through pulsing basslines, energetic dance hooks, military precision drums, and powerful vocal delivery. LOSE MY COOL is a brand new track from her forthcoming EP ON FOR YOU out Nov 15, 2013.
From studio time and production tricks from Quan Yeomans (Regurgitator) and Scott Horscroft (Presets, Birds of Toyko), Michelle Xen produced LOSE MY COOL, moving her sound into darker and deeper musical territory. This track features rising synths, haunting atmospherics, and stop-start rhythms all wrapped up in under 3 mins of shimmering electro-pop.
With more new music to be released in 2013, and a run of killer live shows, expect to see a lot more of Michelle Xen everywhere you look in 2013.
“There’s undeniable chemistry between these guys [the band]. The entire live outfit brought the songs to life and created a whole new experience both visually and musically. Not only does Michelle Xen have a killer voice, she’s entertaining and her energy on stage seeps down into the crowd. You can’t help but move to the beat in some way.”
- Brisbane Society of Sound
"Xen's voice, charisma, presence and performance are all first class"
- Courier Mail
"Michelle Xen + The Neon Wild had an instant energetic presence. As the unfolding set weaved its way through hypnotic waves of electro fusion,
our dancing foots migrated front and centre - finding myself at some points in a trance-like state. I really would have loved another half-hour of Michelle Xen"
- Scene Mag
"Michelle [Xen] is such a spirited and dramatic performer... It certainly makes for something entertaining to watch."
- AU Review
"A little bit dark and a whole lot of sexy."
- It's My Kind Of Scene
"Accompanied by live band, The Neon Wild, Michelle Xen is doing all the right things to bring the art back into performing artist."
