By now it is clear that Mika is not as other artists are. His surname could just as well be ‘Singular’. Enveloped in an imaginative musical world of his own creation, he is one of the few British male pop stars of his age that doesn’t run with the pack. Classically trained, racially mixed and prone to theatrical physical gesture, he has become a scion of ambitiously delivered self-expression. If his debut album Life In Cartoon Motion was the brazen calling card of this individuality, then its follow up, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, is the maturation of an unapologetic pop sound that he has made all his own. The octave-straddling voice, the virtuoso piano-playing, the rumbling rhythms and explosive finale’s, the larger than life storytelling to get to the nub of human insecurities and the striking technicolor pop productions are all in place.
