Get To Know: Blackbird Blackbird

I love that it’s only the fifth day of the year and I already have a new band to introduce to you guys! Here we go. First Get To Know segment of the year!

Blackbird Blackbird is a moniker of music prodigy Mikey Maramag. Hailing from San Francisco, CA, Blackbird Blackbird is a mixture of electronic/synthpop bliss with psychedelic pop and ghostly vocals from another dimension. You might of heard his current single, “It’s A War,” in the new 2013 Chevy Malibu commercial.

Blackbird Blackbird released his debut album, Summer Heart, in 2010 to critical acclaim from the likes of Fader, XLR8R, RCRDLBL, and more. His current EP, Boracay Planet, was released this past October and if you’re a synth junkie like me, it’ll be sweetness to your ears.

Take a listen to “It’s A War” below:

Boracay Planet is available now here.
