It’s the soundtrack for a party at the end of the world.
Super Mirage is a Brooklyn-based band that serves up a high-energy dance-ready indie pop with a flair for theatrics. They're currently finishing up their first full-length record, Pretty Lies, slated for May 2010 release. You can watch the music video of their first single Never Too Late here.
Called “quirky indie pop” by New York Magazine and “macabre rock [that] takes audiences on a tuneful tour of dark places” by The Village Voice, Super Mirage is above all music you can move your body to. Taking their name from a 1970s French bicycle brand, they combine driving guitars and bouncing synths with influences ranging from post-punk, emo and electro -- plus a healthy dose of Michael Jackson (R.I.P.). In other words, it’s four skinny dorks delivering deep danceable grooves with occasionally sardonic lyrics. The Super Mirage philosophy: life is hard and short, so party now before it’s all over.
Super Mirage has strong ties to the theater world, featuring the talents of Nathan Leigh (noted theater composer and sound designer, also of Boston band A Thousand Ships) on guitars and vocals, Kyle Jarrow (also of the band The Fabulous Entourage and an Obie Award winning playwright) on keyboards and vocals, Drew St. Aubin (also of the band Aldenbarton) on the drums, and Arvi Sreenivasan (accomplished stage and television composer) on bass.
Their debut EP This Drama, released under their old band name "Sputnik Sweetheart," is available now through myspace and itunes.
