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.
