Micky simply has a hit on her hand with this song, “Wild Thing”. Check out our Sonicbids contest winner Micky Blue and find out why she wrote this amazing single below.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
Well it’s the album title track so I was really excited to release it! Also we just had Halloween and I feel like with the days getting darker and colder the spooky vibe to “Wild Things” feels appropriate!
Also I just want to give a shout to my amazing co-writers on this song Lyon Hart, Joren Van Der Voort and producer Mickey Valen!
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
The whole EP is about my struggles with the music industry. Wild Things is the album title track and kind of talks about one of the main album themes which is our inner demons. For example, take the lyric “and I never want you to see all of my razor teeth”. We all have our demons and parts of us that we don’t want other people to see. This song creates the vibe and over all feeling of the EP.
What was the writing process for the song?
The EP producer Mickey Valen and I became fast friends over lots of sessions drinking (or maybe over drinking) “Dark & Stormy’s” and bonding over our experiences in the industry, the good times and bad. I personally was in a REALLY bad place, so tired of people asking me to sing and write like somebody else. So I stopped caring about what everyone else wanted and we just started making music that we loved and we enjoyed. So the writing process came from a dark place but was so therapeutic and now put me in the hopeful and optimistic headspace I am in now.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
It’s my inner thoughts, it’s what I really think and feel inside. It’s what I really went through. I always sing my truth, and I think when you sing from the heart people can relate to that raw honesty and hopefully it makes them feel not so alone.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I think you will have to come see me in NYC November 18th at Rockwood Music Hall stage 1 to find out!
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
I don’t think so. People are complicated and have lots of layers. This is one very strong side of me, but I have lots more to give.
Is there a video planned anad or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
I would LOVE to start working on a video for this, I will have to keep you posted! Right now I have another video about to drop soon so I will release that one first before I start on any new videos for this project.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
2 things! 1) this might sound crazy but my motivation is emotional survival! Music is my life and if I’m not doing shows or making music I am incredibly miserable. And 2) the people who connect to my music. I have no idea what the future will bring, maybe my music will go as far a few people on facebook and soundcloud. But I do this because every once in a while I get a message from some random person on social media telling me how much my song helped them or meant to them, or maybe it just made them dance but those personal messages from people keep me going. Music was always there for me, and so if I can give half to someone what other peoples music has given to me then I think it’s worth every moment.
