Video: Miami Horror Releases Music Video for "I Look to You;" Playing LIV September 15

In all of our efforts to track down the best in local music, sometimes we just land upon little gems that hardly have anything to do with Miami, but we still can't help but share.

Granted, Miami Horror is not from Miami -- nowhere near it, actually, as the disco-infused electropop foursome hails from Melbourne, Australia -- but we can't help but smirk at the 305-love they're giving us with such a band name. 

Here's hoping the "horror" they found here has more to do with the band visiting here on "holiday" mid-hurricane season or something. Or maybe they were just really into Miami Vice in the 80's, as their band's signature font would suggest, and were "horrified" when they realized pastel suits are so not in anymore. We're just guessing, here.

Well, these Miami "impostors" bring a jazzy, beach vibe that would fit in well at any South Beach club, anyway. And we're not just saying that.The video for "I Look to You" starts off with a woman with a brown bob,

her complexion glowing as she walks slowly through grass

fields and sings about what she's looking for. The song is off of their

debut album, Illumination, just released on August 20.

The video is at once psychedelic

and spiritual, but what really stands out for us is the the infusion of

French house and disco bass with underlying funk guitars and smooth

vocals by Melbourne's very own Kimbra. We just can't tell if we want to

head bob, tap our feet, sway gently by a poolside lounge, or just flat

out dance.

They'll be playing live at LIV on Wednesday, September 15. Here's hoping they bring a lot of "Miami flavor" along with them.

Check out the video below, and let us know what you think.
