TORONTO, ON - AUGUST 23, 2017 - Sc Mira are everything you never knew you wanted in a band. They are pioneers in an age of sameness, when everyone is claiming to be different – and don’t worry, the irony of doing just that isn’t lost upon them. It has been two years since Sc Mira discovered their darkness with their debut release, Waiting Room Baby, and the band is back with a new collection of songs, beginning with the aptly titled Keep Crawling EP. Set for a September 22nd release in North America on Sugar Gator Records, and in Europe via Ferryhouse Productions, the new album features the first single Mexico. Have a listen and share here: https://ScMira.lnk.to/MexicoSingleEx.
Since the release of Mexico the band has been featured on FLARE's “10 Canadian Artists You Need to Have on Your Radar RN’, spun on CBC Radio 1 & CBC Radio 3, landed a premiere for the animated video with New Noise Magazine, test drove new songs with shows in Toronto, Hamilton, Montreal, NWT Pride, AND welcomed Ralph James (of the newly formed APA Canada) to their team as their agent.
“I was knocked out when I first saw Sc Mira live." Ralph continues;"Whatever they’ve done, however they’ve gotten there musically, it’s outstanding – they have a chance to be a worldwide attraction. They’re a major-market artist, for sure.”
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. More info can be found at www.scmira.com.
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.
