Space and time crashed into each other and exploded with the full fiery rage of New Orleans' teeming underbelly. From the wreckage and smoke emerged a synthetic drone punctuated by cymbal crashes- neon wings thumped with endless fury and lightning forked through the heavenly night. A primeval reptilian shriek pierced the silence of space and set the entire universe aflame - Mickey Phoenix was born.
Mickey Phoenix EP features indie pop songs from Mars with an electronic twist. 26-year-old Phoenix wrote, recorded, and produced these four songs in a dimly lit, cable & microphone-strewn bedroom studio at The Red House in Uptown New Orleans. Mickey Phoenix EP is an album of nostalgia; a lyrical and sonic transfiguration of Phoenix's own memories from high school in Southern California. He gains inspiration from such songwriters as John Lennon, Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan, and Rivers Cuomo.
