Tom Sarig (Lou Reed, Violent Femmes, Sigur Ros) had this to say about signing the band to his label AntiFragile Music - "I am completely thrilled to be working with Sc Mira and their manager Tim Jones. Sc Mira are that rare act, combining folk voicing with alternative rock into a uniquely incredible sound and songs which to me sound like a glorious positive antidote to the giant raft of boring alternative rock plaguing the airwaves today. This is a band with an international mandate."
Since the release of the first single Mexico, the band has been featured on The Edge's "5 Songs You Must Hear This Week", FLARE's “10 Canadian Artists You Need to Have on Your Radar RN’, New Noise Magazine, GroundSounds, spun on CBC Radio 1, Stingray's "Canadian Indie", charted on CBC Radio 3 top 30 songs of the week, landed the single premiere of Breaking My Skin on CBC Radio 2 The Strombo Show, AND welcomed Ralph James (of the newly formed APA Canada) to their team as their agent.
The self-produced EP was guided by an unlikely partner in mix-engineer Ferro Montanino, a pop producer, and composer with a knack for film work and an inspired collaboration with electronic superstar Skrillex under his belt. Ferro’s knowledge of the electronic and pop world complimented Sc Mira’s synth-driven dance-rock in an unusual way, and thus the term “death pop” was born.
What's The Story About Sc Mira?
Formed in 2013 when singer-songwriter Sadye Cage met lead guitarist and all around jack-of-all-trades, Ty Vega, the duo began inconspicuously enough, playing small acoustic gigs in their hometown. Coffee shops and open mic nights barely scratched their creative itch, and it wasn’t long before Cage and Vega found themselves enlisting additional musicians to play with them both live and in-studio; and so their 2015 debut, Waiting Room Baby, was born.
Maybe it was their own inner-demons, or maybe they decided to embrace it when Noisey suggested that the record would make you “feel gloomy”, but for whatever reason, Cage and Vega wanted to get heavier, creepier even, and wrap it all in a hypnotic package that would drive your emotions to move your body in its place.
Tired of a revolving door of hired guns without a shared vision, the band officially added bassist Mario Lagassé and then-drummer, Jed Desilets to the fold while on tour with CBC Radio 2 personality Rich Terfry, better known by his rapping alter-ego, Buck 65. After cutting their teeth on the impromptu tour, the Sc Mira we have today slowly came into focus. Upon returning from tour, keyboardist Caro LaFlamme rounded out the five-piece, with drummer Joel Leonhardt filling the vacant spot left by Desilets in late-2016.
It’s been a wild ride for this young band, with performances and major festival appearances ranging everywhere from Chicago and New York, to Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, as well as an unforgettable show to an immense crowd of teary-eyed fans in Tokyo. Still, it feels as though this is only the very beginning.
