Miami Horror Announce North American Tour & SXSW Performances

Photobucket
Psych-electronic group Miami Horror have announced their return to North America for a coast-to-coast tour, making stops in Canada, Mexico, and SXSW along the way. The Australian four-piece embarked on a successful freshman tour of the States this past fall behind their debut album, Illumination- now available in the US iTunes store. The original Australian release is also now available as a 2-CD limited edition, which includes a bonus album of Miami Horror hottest tracks, as remixed by the likes of YACHT, Shazam, and Fred Falke.

While Miami Horror initially began as one synthesizer-obsessed producer huddled over a laptop, the group has now become a full, live band, recently playing critically-acclaimed sets at Australia’s biggest festivals, as well as some A-list slots opening for Phoenix, Friendly Fires, La Roux, and Lily Allen.

Chromeo Collaborate With Elly Jackson On Hot Mess Remix


La Roux’s Elly Jackson does not normally step outside of La Roux, but the singer appreciated Chromeo enough to offer vocals for the remix of the track “Hot Mess.”

The song will be featured as a single later this year with Tiga and Duck Sauce also offering up re-imagined versions of the song. Meanwhile, check out the remixed version of “Hot Mess” right here.

And the original music video is here:
