San Francisco musician Mikey Sanders has spent much of the past year under the moniker Blackbird Blackbird, crafting dreamy, synth-laden dance pop gems. But dude cannot be contained to just one moniker. Cursed Kids is Sanders’ new split-personality, though he’ll still be doing Blackbird Blackbird work, too. “Eugene,” the first song that Sanders has dropped under the new name, immediately sets itself apart from Sanders’ previous work. It explodes with Afropop rhythm and energy, rocking jangly guitars, sunny-as-hell keys and some boisterous vocals. It sounds like Contra was invited to a dance party with The-Dream in Jamaica, and if that doesn’t sound like fun to you, you have no soul. Check it out below, or at the Cursed Kids Bandcamp page.
