Blackbird Blackbird "Euphoria"
As far as we can tell, singer/producer Mikey Maramag is still figuring out what his prolific Blackbird Blackbird project sounds like. He's dabbled with sunny, guitar-driven beats, blissed-out chillwave, tweaked hip-hop, and other poignant electronic sounds of all imaginable permutations, and he continues to look for his own particular style on this Four Tet-indebted tune, called "Euphoria." The production exhibits Blackbird Blackbird at his most reserved and mature, favoring low-filtered vocal samples and deep synth melodies over the unbridled exuberance of his usual sound palette. We don't know how the rest of Maramag's new music will compare to this understated effort, but we'll find out when his Erasers LP drops late this summer via Brooklyn's Old Flame label.
