Two years after their visionary EP ‘The Shapes’, Miami Horror has returned with a fresh collaborative sound. Their new single ‘Restless’ brings us a combination of dreamy lo-fi funk guitar, mixed with 70’s era drums, and a sultry soulful vocal. ‘Restless’ can be seen as a stepping stone towards the new band vision, marrying funky elements of their past with a soft upbeat almost-RNB vocal. Going forward, we can expect a continuously evolving group of vocalists and an au courant Miami Horror band experimenting with new sounds and voices.
Miami Horror have proved crowd favourites with over 100 million combined streams, and performances at festivals like Coachella, Governors Ball, Electric Forest, Splendour in the Grass, Beyond the Valley and Just Like Heaven, and gear up to perform at Ecuador's Funka Fest and Mexico's Corona Capital Festival this year, including stops with recent live line up additions of Reva Devito, Nic Mulhall, and TC Milan.
Living between LA and their hometown of Melbourne, the project has grown from this dichotomy, continuing to evolve and transform. With latest offering 'Restless', listeners are allowed a glimpse into the new era of Miami Horror, one oozing with unexpected collaborations and fresh sounds
Argonaut & Wasp
Obsessed with 70s fashion, 80s synths, and 90s culture - argonaut&wasp are a quirky amalgamation of indie vibes, alternative edge, electro dance and funk grooves whose music has been described as the perfect soundtrack to NYC. Headed by Theo and Trey, the band plays live as a four piece, combining raw energy with electronic soundscapes and kaleidoscopic projections in their performances.
At once ambient, percussive and outright funky, there's no questioning Portland artist Soul Ipsum's ability to interlace sonic textures to engage the mind and move the feet. Following a number of cult cassette releases with local future R&B group Magic Fades, 2018 saw Soul Ipsum release their first vinyl into the world, a 12" EP released by NYC's Arcane Records. As a producer, their influences of house, techno and world musics have been honed by the past few years traveling as an international DJ, applying a deft and adventurous touch behind the decks to their live performance.
