MIMR Daily Tunes No.31: Tourist Attractions ‘Million Miles Away’

The next band aiming to make big strides on the manchester music scene are Indie-rock 4 piece Tourist Attractions with their stirring anthem ‘Million Miles Away’

Spiralling riffs, non-stop beats and gritty vocals make for a determined and compelling sound that hard to shake off. Influenced by the rich historical, musical background that the city of Manchester has blessed us over the years, its certainly no doubt that the next attraction should be to take a ride on their journey, its worth queue jumping.

Their next show is next Saturday (24th Sept) at Night and Day Cafe, Manchester supporting Broken Witt Rebels, here are all the essential details you need:

MIMR Video: Baby Brave ‘Mimic My Shins”

MIMR is happy to share the brand new video for ‘Mimic My Shins’ the closing track on last year’s ‘Tacky Birthday’ EP by Wrexham Noise-pop quartet and all round top dudes Baby Brave – a truly stunning visual creation for everyone to enjoy. 

Aided by the super talented, self-taught artist Neat Sleeper also from Wrexham, they’ve managed to bring storming lyrics to life using experimental mixed-media techinques using millions of photos as well as a small amount of photoshop.

Taking a whole year to put together, the finished article is ‘truly a labour of love’ says Emmi, lead vocals/guitarist for BB who expertly edited the video. When talking about the inspiration behind the video Emmi tells us “them things that meant something to someone at some time reconfigured, what does anything realy mean any more anyway”. More visual creativity for the video were inspired by Early Dada films to contempoary collage artists as well as vintage video games and fashion magazines.
Enjoy the video here in all its glory:

MIMR Daily Tunes No.30: Deja Vega ‘Friends In High Places’

Churning another belting track out is the the way Deja Vega operate and this latest anthem is no let up from their usual non-stop brake neck intensity. ‘Friends In High Places’ has pulsating riffs, gripping vocals and quake-like beats, a loud tremor that pierces your ears.

The Alt-Rock trio from Winsford have produced a brilliant video to accompany the track and it’s MIMR recommendation that you get down to see them in Manchester this week (22nd) at Gullivers where their live show will be unleashed, warning it will be a bit special!

MIMR Daily Tunes No.29: Jordan Allen ‘Dancing in the Dark’

One of the hottest acts currently breaking through in 2016 are Rock n Roll quartet Jordan Allen from Bolton and this track cements the explosive momentum the band have gained in recent months. Steely riffs, bold vocals and care-free coolness highlights their many talents perfectly.

Since last seeing them play live at Manchester Dot 2 Dot Festival earlier in the year, they have gone on to achieve regular radio airplay as well a big hometown gig in Manchester and eclipsed by making the line-up at Reading and Leeds festival recently. With more shows to come this Autumn they’re powers only look to increase ten-fold, its a done deal!
