Micky James – CryBaby is available @ Apple Music.
by Walter Price
With a bangin’ blend of the Stones, New York Dolls and solo Jesse Mailn, New York’ s Micky James’ new single “CryBaby” is plenty retro rock n roll glam and modern fashion conscious alt-rawk. The track, a tightly produced raucous lament on the unavoidable trappings of a toxic relationship, is sure to get your juices flowing and hips swaying.
Does your heart go missing when we kiss with our teeth?
Running like a sinner thats afraid of the heat
Spinning like a ballroom blitz but can’t find the beat
So Cry me a wolf
Cause The river is full
Hey, baby you alright?
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
The accompanying music video, directed by Ryan Healy and shot on location at John & Peters Bar, is a straight forward live club (and abandoned rail car) shoot. A film that makes an important indie point, simple no-frills is as potent as almost all pointless big-budget fair. Its only rock n roll and we like it…
Bluster, style and that guitar!

“Crybaby to me feels like my most rock’n’roll song yet. Like all good rock’n’roll songs, the message and the feeling get right to the point”. – M. James
