First Listen: Mikky Ekko, ‘Pull Me Down’ (Prod. by Clams Casino)
Mikky Ekko isn’t your average white male from Nashville in search of audio-induced fame on on Music Row. Unlike contemporaries Dierks Bentley or Dustin Lynch, Mikky is exploring an R&B path with his emotional The Script-meets-Jack Johnson (if Jack stopped whispering all the time)-style croon. It appears Mikky’s affinity for pushing boundaries doesn’t stop here either, as he was able to pull Clams Casino away from his darker production style on the new single ‘Pull Me Down,” a radiant and optimistic plea for love that teases Mikky’s crisp falsetto. This departure serves Clams Casino, who is known for his production work for Lil B, A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd, quite well. Here’s to hoping the pair stick together for another track or two.
While we wait for Mikky to wrap up his debut album for RCA Records, peep the new video for ‘Pull Me Down’ and grab a free download of the track from his official Soundcloud page, below.
