“My food, perfect. B####, perfect. My view, perfect. I am perfect. You are perfect.” Sir Michael Rocks manifests positive vibes with his reflective track “Perfect” from his upcoming album Populair. Heavily based in video game start up music, the song’s droning synth lines and hard-hitting hood bass and 808s perfectly match the trippy visual. The video, which was directed by Jimmy Regular and debuted via The A.V. Club, digs deep into his obsession with video games, showing a pixelated Sir Mike actually coming to life in a Street Fighter video game.
Taking more control over the production and creation of this album more so than with his debut solo album Banco, Populair is the next step in Sir Michael Rocks’ evolution and growth as a creator. Whereas Banco featured guest artists Twista, Mac Miller, and Iamsu!, the more personal and retrospective Populair features no guests. Populair releases September 11th and this latest single, “Perfect,” is available for download when the album is pre-ordered on iTunes.
