Madame Psychosis is a five-piece alt pop & indie rock band from Toronto. Members include singer Michelle Mondesir, guitar players Bret McCaffrey and Rene Ip, drummer Jaina Tharakan, and bass player Giovanni Paola.
The band released their debut album on June 16th, 2017 and received a positive response. Most notably, the single “Space Motorcycle” cracked Alan Cross’ Top 11 Playlist. The album was also featured on 94.9 The Rock FM‘s artist spotlight, Generation Next, in May of 2018. Four songs from the debut album were showcased, including “Space Motorcycle”, “Run”, “On Top of The Game”, and “Mellow”. The band supported the album by performing at venues across Toronto, including at the legendary Opera House and The Horseshoe Tavern. They were also selected by a panel to perform at Toronto Ribfest on Canada Day 2018.
Madame Psychosis is now working on new material for their upcoming album. The band released “Just Wanna Be Myself” as the lead single on January 3rd, 2019, and performed it live on Global News’ national broadcast of The Morning Show. A Journal of Musical Things says it’s “a fun, upbeat song with sweet yet edgy female vocals”. Dropout Entertainment says “‘Just Wanna Be Myself’ is a pop-rock diddy and a testament to being comfortable, or the quest to be comfortable – in your own skin.” Stereo Stickman says, “there’s a genuine air of honesty that runs throughout their songwriting…this song is one that gets better and better with each revisit.”
