My name is Ron Mikey Martin and I'm a singer and this is my side blog

"Summer Romance" is probably the last single for "Wonderland" because I aim to finish it sometime this month so it can come out NEXT month. Eighties vibe, or something like it. Contains musical and lyrical interpolations from Tegan and Sara’s "Drove Me Wild".

"A Changed Man", the follow-up to February’s "143" and the second single from an album I still am working on, I just kinda forgot for a bit OH WELL. Spacey, ambient, empty vibe but not quite minimalist? I don’t know lmao bye

hello friends, I want to talk about an album that I’ve been working on for a Very Long Time. okay so, this album is called “Wonderland” and I want to hopefully share it with everybody in the summer. because it’s a very summery-feeling album! it’s the first part of a series that I hope to eventually finish. this series focuses on this one guy who hates his life because it’s unfortunate and sucky, and lives through his dreams to feel less unfortunate and sucky. this album is all about the good, happy dreams he has of little consequence. okay let me tell you about the music!

  1. Done Talking: a tense, strung-up Eurodance song. Plot-wise, it’s where everything begins: he has a fight with someone he is really close with and it throws him off. The finished version of this song is going to feature my good friend Pragya, but for now, there is a demo on Soundcloud here!
  2. Spaceflight: interlude. Basically I asked myself: what would a good-ass trip where you imagined space would sound like?
  3. Wonderland: the title track, a dance-pop/dubstep-influenced-kinda-not-really song. This song describes the REALLY GOOD dream that he has that makes him wanna stay asleep. I hope for it to be the big kahuna of this album.
  4. A Changed Man: a spacey, trippy, kinda minimal R&B song. One of those reflective,longing-about-lost-love kind of tracks. Very laid-back but one of my favourites nonetheless.
  5. Swimming: interlude. Pretty much an ode to Spyro the Dragon and its awesome music in the early games, especially Ripto’s Rage!
  6. Dreaming: the representative ~ballad~ of the album, sorta not really, This song is similar to track #4 in that it is also about lost love. But somewhat more upbeat, less of a downer, more bittersweet. I wrote this song with my little brother :)
  7. 143: I should hope you’ve already heard this one! If not, here it is again on my blog.
  8. Arcade isn’t included in the preview, but it’s an 8-bit version of the next song:
  9. Summer Romance: a fun retro-pop dance number that, again, is about love lost but sees it in a more friendly, positive, maybe-in-the-future kind of light. When I say retro I mean aggressively retro. It has probably the most infectious hook I’ve written.
  10. Closer: a cover of Tegan and Sara’s song from their 2013 album, Heartthrob. I love this song so much so I decided to do it too!
  11. Take Off!: alright I really didn’t know what I was doing when I wrote this song I’m ngl2u , it was at 4AM and I was really tired but I loved the result so much I kept it. Basically it’s an ode to outer space.
  12. Log I: Airzones isn’t included in this preview, but it’s a much calmer, almost stark ballad track that sums up The Story So Far for the main dude. Kind of sad really but not ruin-your-day sad.
  13. Summerland: again, isn’t included but is a mash-up of Summer Romance and Wonderland, with a different, organic-sounding take on both songs.

Okay that’s all I really wanted to say about it! thank you for listening if you did love you goodbye mwah

143 lyrics / audio here on SoundCloud

"143", the first single from an album I’m working on, "Wonderland", which is likely hopefully gonna happen this summer. Totally pop, kinda cheesy song about Valentine’s Day and shit.

The Ronettes - Be My Baby cover

Demo for a song I’m working on for an album that is going to eventually happen this summer. Mostly pop, kind of influenced somewhat by euro trance and dream pop. Eventually going to have another voice on it, I just don’t know who yet.
