Why do we like this?
First a Rihanna refix, now a Kate Bush cover? Blackbird Blackbird's just playing games with my musical heart.

My god. I don't know where to begin. Two of my favorite things smashed together! "Running Up That Hill" and chillwave. Let's just stick with his SoundCloud tag as a suitable description for this tremendous track: future pop.

Blackbird Blackbird is San Francisco-based wünderkind Mikey Marama. We obviously have the best artists here in the Bay area - Mikey's known for his self-described "dreamy folktronica" that draws from contemporaries like Washed Out and Mount Kimbie. This song is flat-out hypnotic, really squeezing dry the old Bush song by just teasing out one lyric then splicing it against lively blips and beeps. The cover surges and retreats with a liveliness you should expect of electronic pop, but still retains Kate's original, full-bodied, echoing-off-the-walls dramatic sound. A great little number to dance to.

I'm floored. Nice work Mikey. Looking forward to your next track transformation.

You can check out Blackbird Blackbird on his website. Digital downloads of his work can be found on Bandcamp.
