MITZI LIVEN THINGS UP WITH THEIR DEBUT ALBUM ‘TRULY ALIVE’
Words by Scenewave Australia - Published on January 24, 2013
“With brief exhalations for verses, toe-tapping guitars, and synths sparkling intermittently in the background, “All I Heard” strives for that blissful feeling of mindlessness above all else.”
Released through Sydney label Future Classic (Flume / Flight Facilities / Panama), Mitzi are set to unleash their highly anticipated debut album “Truly Alive”.
Mixed by Ash Workman (Klaxons /Metronomy), the LP features iTunes ‘Single of the Week’, “Who Will Love You Now”, and showcases the Brisbane-based band’s unique brand of garage disco, NYC indie with the light-heartedness of Australian pop. Armed with a dreamy astral delivery, vintage analogue warmth and summery sounds, this record is steeped in disco cool.
The band kick off 2013 in style, invited to support UK mega-group Foals at their two sold-out Sydney Big Day Out side shows this January. Showing no sign of slowing down, Mitzi will also be crossing the country to perform at Perth Festival in mid-February alongside the likes of Flight Facilities and Panama.
Mitzi have previously supported the likes of Darwin Deez, Foster The People andThe Whitest Boy Alive and have used their production skills to remix artists such as Two Door Cinema Club (Kitsune), Cassian (Bang Gang 12″s), Lo Fi Fnk and Jinja Safari.
Book-ending a hugely successful 2012 with a glowing review on iconic online destination, Pitchfork, the foursome were also recently announced to showcase at SXSW in 2013.
