San Francisco-based electronic artist Mikey Maramag has been releasing music under the moniker Blackbird Blackbird since 2010 and yesterday announced his signing with Lavish Habits Records
Under his new label, Maramag plans to release a new EP entitled Boracay Planet. The record will act as a follow-up to his lauded 2010 debut full length, Summer Heart. Back in June, the noise rocker shared a new single, “Happy With You,” which you can stream here. Though the track predates the work comprising his upcoming release, it may be a good indicator of what to expect. The song features a more vocal-focused melody, as Maramag wistfully sings a breathy lullaby atop layers of dream pop drenched guitar plucking, synthesizer riffs and looped background vocals.
The Bay Area Avant-popper also recently wore his remix hat and reworked Adele’s hit, “Rolling In The Deep.” You can listen to the disjointed, sped up remix here.
With such a wide range of styles, from mellow, soothing folk-tinged tracks like “Happy With You,” to more instrumentally focused electronic tunes; it will be interesting to hear his newest collection of songs. Boracay Planet is set for an October 16 release via Lavish Habits.
