When: Single for now. A few more at his Soundcloud.
Why: And so begins the beautiful rabbit hole of Mikky Ekko. Begin with his spine-shiveringly beautiful love song “Pull Me Down” that laces tender lyrics crooned in his amazing voice between the haunting production of Clams Casino.
Then stumble out of the afterglow into the clatter and groove of the pepped up yet highly ominous Ryan Hemsworth remix. Then realize that Mikky sings alongside Rihanna on her new song “Stay” and be taken aback by the guy’s consistent talent as well as RiRi’s surprising singing voice.
As you wonder why Rihanna doesn’t make more songs this great find yourself swept up in the clack and click of this delicate Them Jeans remix, a perfect alternative when a bit more funk is needed during your new “Stay” obsession. Then wonder if your new “Stay” obsession even has anything to do with Rihanna or whether it’s that Mikky guy again. Return to “Pull Me Down.” Repeat.
