MIAMI HORROR PRESENTS: THE SHAPES
Visually, the themes compliment the rhythmic and percussive sounds of the project. Focusing on the use of bold shapes, hand drawn lines and color. “I’ve always been a fan of colourful art and murals, especially those from the late 80s and early 90s. As a child, they excited and inspired me every time I passed them. This left a lasting effect on me into adulthood, a lust for colour and the extraordinary amongst the mundane colours of suburbia or the grey-ness of Melbourne city,” says Ben Plant.
Since the release of their debut album Illumination in 2010, Miami Horror has toured extensively across the globe showcasing their diverse mix of influences, whilst living between LA and their hometown of Melbourne. Along with other Australian acts including Cut Copy and Total Giovanni, Miami Horror have helped in the rebirth of disco creating their own brand of Aussie electronica that is recognized internationally and have become absolute staples on dance-floors worldwide.
The Shapes is like nothing the band have produced before. Their imaginative vision brings color back to daily life with a mold-breaking collection of art. Be sure to catch them at one of their epic block parties or headline shows and boogie down with Melbourne’s most colorful four-piece.
