GENRE: Indie Garage Rock
RIYL: Sloan, Ween, Ty Segall
Mikus writes with an interest in unworldly guitar tones, fishhook melodies, throbbing bass riffs, and pulsating drums, making his music familiar and organic. It’s not shy to include digital drum machines or organ tones to further accent the varying themes and sentiments in the songwriting.
After releasing the hooky single ‘Drowning Crown’ and embarking on his first solo tour across Ontario in October, 2016, Mikus returned home to Sault Ste. Marie to begin recording his debut album alongside his bassist/producer Dustin Goodall, and high-school mates: drummers Mitch Harris and Keeghan Rosso. With multiple festival appearances at Sault Ste. Marie’s Rotary, Emergency and Fishbowl Festivals under his belt, plus a recent performance on the Beach Stage at 2017’s River & Sky Music Festival in Field, Ontario, Mikus is now a resident of Montreal.
He has just released an outrageous tomato-themed music video for 'Plastic Veggies', pushing psycho-sexual boundaries as the third single in support of the new album. Featuring tracks about growth and changes in both Mikus’ life and his surroundings, the self-titled album will be available for streaming and purchase on December 22, 2017.
