Night Beats, Miranda & The Beat

  • Night Beats

    Night Beats

    Garage Rock

    Named in homage to Sam Cooke's classic album, Night Beats began as a two-piece in 2009 after both Danny Lee Blackwell and James Traeger moved from Texas to Seattle, Washington and were soon picked up by Chicago’s Trouble in Mind Records (Ty Segall, Fresh and Onlys, Hex Dispensers, etc.) who released their debut album. Cult US West Coast label Burger Records were also on hand, releasing Night Beats’ first two albums via cassette. Having been fans of both records, Heavenly Recordings eventually signed the band in the summer of 2015 and released 'Who Sold My Generation' to much acclaim in 2016.

    2018's 'Myth Of A Man' is their fourth studio album. Written during a particularly destructive period of the band, the album is populated by fallen angels, blood-sucking wanderers, and vindictive lovers - sketches of people the band has surely come across during their cosmic roving through the underground - but the character most present is Blackwell, himself. "Myth Of A Man can be summed up as a personal display of vulnerability and guilty conscience," he explains, "Destroying the mythos of what it means to live and function in society." With its bold steps forward, 'Myth Of A Man' serves as both a takedown and reintroduction of the band as we know it - the strongest evidence that you’ll never be able to pin Night Beats down.

    Music

    Miranda and The Beat are a Rock and Roll band, with all that the term might entail. Drawing from the traditional rock music, as performed by the likes of The Dirt Bombs, The B-52’s, MC5, and Ronnie Spector, Miranda and The Beat operate from a clear eyed appreciation of the greats and a healthy, barn-burning disregard for tropes or traditionalist limitations. Garage, soul, punk, classic rock… pick your poison; the band has plenty to spare. Arriving in New York City in 2018, the band have, through songwriting and performance, proved themselves to be both an essential spark and spearhead to a scene of new blood rockers bringing a much needed renewal of energy to the New York City (garage, rock, whatever) scene. Originally a duo of 21 year old guitarist/vocalist Miranda Zipse and 21 year old drummer Kim “The Beat” Sollecito, the pair quickly added a full band and soon became known for their tireless, wheel-on-fire live sets driven by Miranda’s captivating stage presence, vocal prowess, and her pyrotechnic (but never indulgent!), melodically slashing guitar work. Their live reputation (and a reputation for being neither pushovers nor scumbags) led to collaborations with such childhood idols as The Mystery Lights and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Soon there was the release of their 7” single Such A Fool, on Jack White’s Third Man Records. One pandemic later, between days/nights spent sweating out piss, vinegar, and trackloads of tears in the studio, and a rigorous, borderline ridiculous, rehearsal schedule, Miranda and The Beat are, at this juncture, practically monstrous in both sound and vision, and ready to meet the world.
