Australian synth-pop quartet Miami Horror generated all kinds of buzz with debut LP Illumination. (“Sometimes” and the Kimbra-featuring “I Look To You” were total jams!) The guys are still putting the finishing touches on their sophomore set but kindly dropped “Wild Motion (Set It Free)” to whet our appetite for the project. And, as expected, it’s great.
The shimmery pop anthem is a breezy blast of ’80s-inspired electronica with an instantly hummable chorus that builds around candy-coated synths. Miami Horror take the animated route for the song’s video, which features dancing stick figures and not much else. It’s is fairly minimal but the pastel-colored cartoon has a great soundtrack, which is the most important thing. Watch up top.
