Blackbird Blackbird 

The electronic singer-songwriter performs at Social Hall SF.

San Francisco’s Blackbird Blackbird is the solo project of Mikey Maramag, who makes bubbly, sparkly dance music with uptempo rhythms and eclectic, inventive samples juxtaposed with plainspoken indie-pop vocals. His 2015 album Strawberry Light pulses with minimal house beats and glossy synth melodies; delicate harmonies, jittery percussion, and aquatic-sounding samples ornament the tracks throughout. The musician has a knack for making music that’s danceable yet surprising at every turn — whether writing pop songs or more abstract beat instrumentals. Strawberry Light also contains several remixes of tracks from his 2014 release, Tangerine Sky, a more euphoric, effervescent precursor to his most recent project. Blackbird Blackbird performs at Social Hall SF with UK singer-songwriter Chad Valley on April 23.
