Sydney-based band Mirella’s Inferno have dropped their impressive second EP ‘Haunting’, promising to deliver a “darkwave dreampop masterpiece”.
Indeed they have, taking the listener on a journey from start to finish, featuring themes of curiosity, pain, reflection and escapism.
It’s easy to get lost in the world of Mirella’s Inferno and their unique sound of electronic pop rock, supported by frontwoman Meghan Dea’s Kate Bush-style vocals.
Opening track ‘Disease’ delves deep into the pain of heartbreak, begging the questions to an ex lover “Did you ever see my heart break in two? Wasnt I enough?”. Talk about an icebreaker!
Party track ‘One Way Ticket’ lightens up the mood inviting you to escape into the dancing streets. This track is a particular favourite of mine and is probably their most accessible pop song.
‘Tales And Wonder’ puts you straight into the zone of insomnia, up at 3am, questioning everything about the world right through the night, while title track ‘Haunting’ is a touch of reflection, pondering about the sometimes harsh reality of the world.
Catchy track ‘Walk Away’ rounds out the release, ironically pleading “dont walk away, dont walk away” … and we really dont want to.
Mirella’s Inferno have produced a powerful EP that deserves to be recognised amongst the Australian music industry. And we eagerly look forward to their next release!
VERDICT : 4/5.
MUST LISTEN : Disease, One Way Ticket, Haunting.
