After selling out Hackney’s Oslo, Blackbird Blackbird returns to London on 22nd October to play The Nest in Dalston in support of his new LP Tangerine Dreams.
Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker of San Francisco-based wünderkind Mikey Maramag. His unique style of dreamy folktronica recalls influences from all ends of the musical spectrum; deeply textured, hypnotic songs pay homage to psychedelic pop the likes of Caribou and Washed Out, while the warmth of analogue instrumentation spliced with digital artefacts hints at contemporaries James Blake,
Four Tet and Mount Kimbie.
“like an upbeat electronic fog, aurally all-encompassing in the very best way.” – The Onion A/V Club
“His style beautifully connects the dots between hypnotizing electronica, dreamy pop and profound complex melodies that will work both your mind and your dancing sneakers.” – Thump
“The calling card of San Francisco’s Blackbird Blackbird) is a song-smart approach to electronic music that takes pop songs and refracts them through the disti¬¬lled, treated lenses of electronic genres”
