Miami Horror

Hola y bienvenidos.

Hoy quiero hablar de Miami Horror.  El primero vez que escuché Miami Horror (back to English now, the Spanish may not have been overly marvellous anyway) was well over a year ago now, so even if you hadn't heard of them then, you probably have now.  Who knows why it's taken me so long to talk about them, but it's definitely not because they're no good.

Hailing from the land down under, or not depending on where you're reading this from, but just to avoid any confusion, they are Australian.  They make a rather cool brand of disco-y electropop, which helps to distinguish them from other wondiferous Australians such as Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernauts and Jason Donovan.

As of yet they've only cracked out one EP, Bravado, and a couple of other singles, Sometimes and Moon Theory.

That there track is from said EP and is probably my favourite track.  Although I would definitely push you in the direction of the Cassian remix of Don't Be On With Her.

By all accounts le album is very much on the way and judging by their two latest singles that have been released after Bravado, I would think they've spent a lot of time listening to In Ghost Colours, which is no bad thing at all.  If I managed to make an album that sounded like that I'd be dead chuffed.

Other reasons to like them?  Well, they supported Phoenix on their latest Australian tour and anyone with the Phoenix seal of approval has to be worth listening to!  It is however a little disappointing to see they haven't managed to get/don't want any gigs in Europe, but I'm sure they'll jump on the ferry one day rock the shit out of Shoreditch.
