Miami Horror, the indie-electro 5-piece from Melbourne, are hands down one of the most underrated Australian music acts in this country. They’re the type of band where you’ll actually know a lot of their songs like Summertime, Holidays and Moon Theory – or at the very least heard it on the airwaves. And such will probably be the case with their cracking new tune, Love Like Mine.
Thanks to guys like Daft Punk, Mark Ronson and co. the funk vibes in the wider music industry has been revived – and I’ve been loving it! This track – which is the second single of their forth coming record All Possible Futures – has all the same hallmarks. Starting with an early synth, and a simple yet funkishly delicious guitar riff this has summer anthem written all over it – despite winter being on the horizon. Featuring LA’s Cleopold, the lyrics blend in seamlessly and tell a pretty standard love-seeking narrative – trust me after a few listens, you’re going to be humming “If I was all you’re looking for, just tell me that you want some more.”
Keep an ear out for some rising violins in the background, as well as the retro synths that have become a staple on Miami Horror’s repertoire. And while the throw back guitar is the star of the show, the supporting cast really elevates this into a melodic gem – a synth-solo bridge (you read that correctly!) Is just one of the many eccentric elements.
The best thing about this track though is that it will put a smile on your face and honestly if you’re not dancing to the ridiculous melodies, then you are simply doing it wrong, my friend. A trait that the countless amount of other love-rated pop songs wont be able to provide in the coming months.
