“She's a bona-fide singer-songwriter who can and will simply sell a song around just her voice and the sound of an acoustic guitar” Pitchfork
Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Holly Miranda returns with her mesmerising indie-pop and unleashes her eerie vocals this January.
Formerly of The Jealous Girlfriends, Miranda’s debut solo album, The Magician’s Private Library, earned praise from Vanity Fair, Dazed and Confused and The New York Times, as well as NME likening it to “leafing through a box of old photographs”. Produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, the album bears his trademark stormy layers to strings, bells and horns, combined with Miranda’s arresting falsetto to create songs laden with atmosphere.
Drawing comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Cat Power, Miranda creates dreamy, otherworldly songs with effortless cool and charming on-stage modesty. With fans including Kanye West and Scarlett Johansson, Miranda was last in Sydney for Vivid LIVE 2010, a festival curated by Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson at Sydney Opera House.
For her second visit to Australia Miranda will be joined on stage by her 3-piece band, showcasing material from one of the most enthralling records of 2010.
