Explosive, unapologetic and infectious, Mickey 9s are four friends from Glasgow who have been playing together since their school days. They describe seeing Daft Punk’s Alive Tour as “a spiritual-like encounter” that inspired them to try to make dance music without synths. After much experimentation, the band found their sound and everything else soon fell into place, right down to the enigmatic image of their masked lead singer, known as St. Cool.
Having always chosen the unconventional route, Mickey 9s launched themselves by releasing fun music videos and comic strips to accompany their music as well as organising secret gigs, raves, and all-day pop-up festivals. Word soon spread about their blistering live performances, leading to Mickey 9s winning the 2014 Scottish Alternative Music Award for Best Live Act.
After two years of gigging and unorthodox releases, the time has come for them to launch their highly anticipated debut album ‘The Party Manifesto’. The second single to come from the album is ‘Computer Inventor’, a perfect introduction to Mickey 9s’ big basslines, four to the floor pounding drums, cool riffs and intelligent, sharp vocals.
