Miami Horror on tour for 2010 album Illumination.
Guests on the album include Neon Indian, Swedish singer MAI, Melbourne-based singer Kimbra and Dappled Cities‘ Tim Derricourt. Wikipedia says that the Melbourne electro-pop act has a “disco-house throwback style.”
The band has played Australia’s biggest festivals and have performed with Phoenix, La Roux and Lily Allen.
Critical accolades for Miami Horror:
“…a vice I’m unable to kick.. [Miami Horror’s] songs are saccharin drenched, heart pulsing and buzzworthingly yummy thanks to lyrics and synths which cause an immediate sugar high.” – New York Post
“Miami Horror manages to stand out among the clutter by doing it just as well, if not better, than everyone else.”- The Dallas Observer
“‘Illumination’ is a wonderful start of something we hope to be around for a long time.” – Chicagoist
