Blackbird Blackbird – “Summer’s Almost Here”
Blending a hypnotic array of ghostly vocals, smooth legato synths, and dance-inducing house elements, “Summer’s Almost Here” is a risk-taking success from San Francisco-based electronic producer Blackbird Blackbird, the alias of Mikey Maramag. There are points in this song that will make you wonder if you are listening to an indie/electronic producer, or to something that has the backing of a major record label’s money tree. The engaging flow of the track touts its cleanliness and polish, while the entirety of “Summer’s Almost Here” flourishes as a result of keeping to its underground tropical roots. Mikey Maramag’s Blackbird Blackbird is an electronic project worth keeping an eye on.
