Fast rising Mikky Ekko, who we last saw working with Clams Casino on “Pull Me Down,” stopped by Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show earlier today and hit up the Live Lounge to perform a couple of tracks. First up was a ghostly, very personal cover of The xx’s “Chained,” followed by an excellent live version of “Pull Me Down.” Listen to the two tracks below, and start getting excited for Mikky’s 2013 debut album, which has Clams, Dave Sitek and Paul Epworth on production duties.
