about

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.

Track Name: Sophie
The schoolyard, I’m waiting,
This is so frustrating,
I wish you’d understand.

But your “Oh mickey you’re so fine,
You’re so fine you blow my mind,”
How could I even mind,
Standing here the rest of my life,
Singing Sophie I love you so,

The stories, abounded,
all 15, I counted,
but you don’t even care.

So give it up again for me,
Baby I will set you free,
I will try my best to be,
Symbol of maturity,
Sophie I love you so.
Track Name: The Worst Day Of My Life
And I remember when I lost you,
So sad to say,
It was the worst day of my life.

Come close to me,
My bumblebee,
You’re killing me tonight.

Can I erase,
The shitty things I did to you?

I guess I got what I deserved,
I guess I got what I deserved,
I really got it good,

And I remember when I lost you,
So sad to say,
It was the worst day of my life.

Caravaggio and DiMaggio,
They fill me with regret.
Come on let’s go, to Tokyo,
I’ll put a flower in your hair.

I guess I got what I deserved,
I guess I got what I deserved,
I really got it bad,

And I remember when I lost you,
So sad to say,
It was the worst day of my life.
Track Name: Slow Dance
When you gave me that glance,
I wanted to slow dance.

So I made my advance,
we started to slow dance.

When I gave you my hand,
united we slow danced.

If you give me a chance,
I'll give you a slow dance.

I wanna get you alone,
sidle up beside you,
take a swim inside your head
and slip your body into bed.

And when I get you alone,
I start to fantasize
that your blue eyes see romance
reflected in a slow dance.
Track Name: Only Words
I'm feeling mighty small,
and I've got no one at all,
and then you came around,
and took me further down.

They're only words,
and you didn't mean them,
They're only words,
and I barely heard them,
They're only words,
but those words make it hard.

I thought I saw the light,
But I didn't see it right.
You say we are nothing,
But still you haunt my dreams.
