We’ve got a treat for you in the form of a brand new track from neo-80s indie boys, MIAMIGO.
MIAMIGO are a duo from that hotbed of indie-creativity, Brighton, with a distinctive noir-pop sound that melds electronica and witty production with smooth, dulcet vocals. It’s an attractive combination, not least because their sonic and aesthetic palate is laced through with cool-now-that-it-was-over-20-years ago 80s references: their band-graphics wouldn’t be amiss in a Miami Vice nightclub and their synth-play sometimes reaches deliciously Duran Duran levels.
Their recent video for “What I Want” was appropriately throwback, with retro camcorder visuals (complete with fuzzy-date-on-screen), ironic Polaroid use, and various Brighton-based coastal antics. Not to mention the fiendishly addictive track itself that has me recalling my, rather peculiar, teenage obsession with Flock of Seagulls – but with a good dash of that distinctive English indie flavour that we’ve all loved at one time in our lives.
We are pretty thrilled, then, to be able to bring you the premiere of their latest track, “Last Summer”, which is a bittersweet cut from their soon to be released EP, Soda Lime Love. It’s the final track on the record and marks the last part of the EP’s overarching narrative of “the stages of a failed love story”. Even without the context of the full EP (though you don’t have to wait long for that), it’s a must-listen that explores the darker, more melancholy aspect of the band’s sound and exhibits their bittersweet lyrical prowess. So enjoy and don’t forget the whole EP is out on Friday.
Soda Lime Live is out 13th November and catch MIAMIGO live in Brighton on 5th December at Patterns.
