Cry Baby Purple – “Mr. Know It All”

Just a few months after the release of “Sometimes People Hate Me“, his first single, Irish musician Mikey Deasy is already back again as Cry Baby Purple with an exceptional new track. “Mr. Know It All” is an upbeat, groovy funk-infused rock that works beautifully on every single level.

Taking inspiration from acts as diverse as Red Hot Chili Peppers and Queens of the Stone Age, “Mr. Know It All” is the second single from his upcoming debut EP Video Brain. The single features guitar riffs that stick with you for days, gigantic choruses, and an overall feeling that this was written and built for greatness. The production on “Mr. Know It All” feels very 1970s, sounding nostalgic enough to keep that retro feeling alive, while also being something extremely up-to-date with the current indie music scene. Like something we could’ve heard from artists such as Prince or David Bowie, with a splash of Sparks thrown in for good measure. In modern terms, “Mr. Know It All” sounds like the best song Franz Ferdinand ever managed to write.

Mikey Deasy had already built a name for himself as a successful session musician in the Irish music scene over the past years, and now he is finally ready to shine on his own. And shine he does, “Mr. Know It All” is a crystalline piece of work that feels incredibly well thought out. And fun! This song is a pure bolt of joyous fun energy, and we all could use more of this in our lives. From the two tracks we’ve heard this far, we can tell that his EP will be a must-listen from top to bottom.
