Happy Friday! I love this track! Perfect end of the week tune! This is "Summer Sun" from Australian indie band, Miami Horror. It's from the band's 2010 debut album, "Illumination." I love the disco house influence in this track. I just can't resist a good disco beat. Hehe. Check it out! :D
Benjamin Vanguarde started out releasing remixes under the name, Miami Horror, in 2007. In 2008, he added three members to play guitar, drums and keyboards. Later that year, the group released the five-track EP, "Bravado" which was well received. Things pretty much took off after that as the band starting touring and playing festivals. During 2009 - 2010, the group supported heavyweights like Phoenix and Lily Allen during their Australian tours. However, it was the 2009 single, "Sometimes," that earned the group commercial success. That track appears on the 2010 debut album, "Illumination."
I'm not sure what Vanguarde is up to as of late. His latest release is a single from August 2011 called the "Under The Milky Way." It's pretty rad. Great summer road trip music. I leave you with that track! :D I hope you enjoyed this week's tunes! I've got a trick up my sleeve for later today, so come on back!
