Blackbird Blackbird dishes up some dreamy poptronica


Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker of San Fran-based Mikey Maramag. Maramag has a unique style: it’s folk-influenced electronic dream-pop, think Mount Kimbie meets Youth Lagoon or James Blake meets Caribou.

‘All’ very much falls under this banner. Hypnotic guitar loops, straight 4-4 beat of hard kicks and snares and soft, melancholic vocals. As the track goes on more electronica is introduced with varying percussion being adopted and white noise being utilised more. Towards the end the song becomes more futurist in its use of honky-tonk synths and has a more dreamy feel to it.

Blackbird Blackbird’s highly anticipated Boracay Planet EP is out October 16th.
