Returning from the ‘Boracay Planet’ EP, San Francisco’s Blackbird Blackbird takes his dreamy electronic pop to even greater heights with his new album ‘Tangerine Sky’ out now on Om Records. Check his latest video “Psychedelic Romance” for his upcoming single “Love Unlimited” which will be out July 7th with the b-side “Waikiki”.
Blackbird Blackbird’s new album Tangerine Sky contains some of the most original material from the San Francisco songwriter/producer. This is futuristic electronic-pop that doesn’t look back for inspiration, instead tying together elements of forward thinking hip-hop/R&B, space-age folk, and the meditative grooves of house and techno.
Tangerine Sky’s first offering, the deconstructed melancholic soul of “There Is Nowhere” sounds unlike any other Blackbird Blackbird song. While it’s an album of new material, many of these songs have been road-tested during Blackbird Blackbird’s busy touring schedule in the last year. In many ways, the album feels like a collection of fan favorites including the synthwork and subdued guitar jangle of “Rare Candy” and “Darling Dear”. The smooth, “Love Unlimited” feels almost weightless with floating atmosphere and subtle yet sticky melodic barbs.
