About “My Drift”:
To celebrate St Patrick’s Day, Mickey O’Brien drops the title track from his upcoming album due on March 22 on Hand’Solo Records. “My Drift” is a shout-along Irish drinking song, a working class anthem, and an ode to lost family and friends. Dealing with personal trauma through music, by turning the negative into a positive, Mickey writes a song to honour the memory of four of his best friends and his dog, whose bark can be heard at the beginning of the song. With Celtic-inspired “East Coast loops” supplied by MPC button-masher and production master Fresh Kils, the result is a rousing yet touching drinking song! Available FREE FOR DOWNLOAD on St Patrick’s Day only!
About Mickey O’Brien:
Mickey O’Brien aka OB OreBody was born and raised in Copper Cliff, Ontario in the shadow of the iconic Sudbury smelter. As such, his music represents the raw, unfiltered experience of the working class man in the modern world, expressed over a soundtrack of 90s era boom bap beats. In fact, by day, Mickey O’Brien works as a hard rock miner, literally exploring the underground. But by day and night, he’s also an underground MC, simultaneously channeling a variety of influences and predecessors—Atmosphere, Eminem, Nas, and Jay-Z, to name a few—to deliver hard-hitting raps that touch on class struggle, love & loss, and the daily trials of life.
And in case you missed it, Mickey also released the first single from My Drift earlier in the week, accompanied by a video…
About “Groundhog Day”:
The first single from Mickey O’Brien’s My Drift album is “Groundhog Day”, a 21st Century critique of organized religion and the failed policies of the church. It’s an all-out verbal attack, not on spirituality, but on those who wield the power of religion to divide, control and conceal. History is doomed to repeat itself, like in the Bill Murray movie, as long as humanity as a whole doesn’t evolve together. Sharing vocal duties is fiery anti-capitalist rapper Lee Reed (Strange Famous), with production from Fresh Kils and frantic closing cuts from Uncle Fester. The video, directed and edited by Dan Jardine for Boom Shoal Enterprises, perfectly captures the theme of the song with a tragic storyline and exciting visuals filmed on location in a beautiful church in Toronto.
