'Myself'is out today! First single from upcoming Blackbird Blackbird album 'Hearts', out on 11/15/19.
Mikey Maramag is the Los Angeles-based electronic artist known as Blackbird Blackbird. His music envelops you with fuzzy warm electro textures, like a cozy sonic womb sheltering you from heartache and life struggles. The songs conjure the blissed-out pop of 1980s new wave, but the chillwave production aesthetic is sharply modern. Today, Blackbird Blackbird announce its third official album, Hearts; a 10-song collectionthat grapples with heartbreak and love.
Since 2010, Mikey has released three official albums, two demo long-playing compilations, and two EPs. His debut, Summer Heart, is a critically-acclaimed chillwave classic. Blackbird Blackbird has been favorably featured on The Hype Machine and XLR8R, and charted on Billboard's Top 100 Dance/Electronic. Seeding the way to his latest release, he put out the single “Hearts” in October 2017, and, in less than a year, the song accrued over 4 million plays.
Blackbird Blackbird has toured extensively nationally and internationally, supporting indie band STRFKR, Baths and Braids, and Grammy-nominated electronic music composer TOKiMONSTA. Mikey has also embarked on two U.S. headline tours, including one with UK electro-pop artist Chad Valley. In addition, Blackbird Blackbird has played Lightning in a Bottle Festival (Nicolas Jaar, Tycho, Rusko, Emancipator), and the legendary Swedish festival Hulsfred Festival (Morrissey, Crystal Castles, Cut Copy, Primal Scream, The Tallest Man on Earth, Foster The People).
Myself (lyrics) :
Everything I do, I do it for Myself. I'm sorry for letting you down. Everything I do, I do it for Myself. Everything I do, I do it for Myself. There's beauty in the light. It blinds us from the dark, but the darkness is what's holding me down. Everything I do, I do it for Myself. I'm sorry for letting you down. All the wasted Love All the wasted Time At least now you won't waste it on me. Everything I do, I do it for Myself. Everything I do, I do it for Myself. There's beauty in the light. It blinds us from the dark, but the darkness is what's holding me down.
