Before Miami Horror headlines a sold out Independent on Wednesday, I had a chance interview Ben Plant, producer and creative force behind the band. They have been busy recently, moving from Australia to LA, exploring ways to to blend different genres into their music and putting out the album All Possible Futures.
Miami Horror comes from Australia, a large island isolated from the rest of the world where marsupials and synth pop have flourished and evolved into creatures you can’t find anywhere else. The Australians have pushed the boundaries of electronic pop and created hundreds of sub-genres of synthpop. Miami Horror infuses their music with disco and other nostalgic elements, but what surprises me most is just how psycadelic the music can get. Especially the new album and tracks like “Forever Ever.” The biggest single is “Real Slow” an amazingly bouncy track that will have you bobbing whether you are hanging with friends, jamming in your car, or hating life at the office.
