M I R Ó U X delivers an infectious “big-stage” sound and addictive melodies, releasing a hypnotic wave of endorphins. With a mix of Alternative Dance Pop, the five young, accomplished musicians’ live performances have left fans fervently awaiting their upcoming EP. An underground buzz quickly emerged when the band leaked their demos in late 2015, only to be amplified in 2016 after opening for “Young the Giant” in Saint Petersburg, FL and playing “Next Big Thing”, alongside The 1975. Miróux also opened for “Cage The Elephant” at Gasparilla Music festival, as well as Bishop Briggs, Bad Suns, and Echosmith at USF’s Bullstock in 2017. Miróux were a little surprised when RARAs Farm’s Music Blog named them “one of the 5 bands you need to see”, next to Ryan Adams and Moon Taxi. One of Miróux’s biggest idols, “Young the Giant”, stated while watching the band’s set: “ We will be opening for Miróux one day”.
M I R Ó U X is the brain-child of lead-singer/multi-instrumentalist/producer Jonah Hollander, (19), a student at the Music Industry Recording Arts program in St. Petersburg, and a dual citizen of the U.S. and Germany, who has a unique amalgamation of musical experiences, ranging from his role as an upright jazz bassist to opening for George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic and touring with Germany’s #1 hip-hop artist, Marteria/Marsimoto. Hollander has been invited to work with award winning producers/songwriters in London, Germany, and Sweden, and is releasing the band’s first upcoming international single in December 2017.
Hollander knew it would take a special elixir of talent to execute the show he envisioned, recruiting some of his fellow students from a prestigious Tampa Bay jazz conservatory; guitarist Zack Page (19), currently at Berklee school of music in Boston, guitarist/DJ George Leventis (18), attending Belmont University in Nashville, Sebastian(Sabi)Siaca (18), and drummer Caleb Sanders (19), who already played at shows such as Rosie O’Donnell and Wayne Brady at age 4.
Miróux’s music ranges from songs of rhythmic electronic dance beats, to heart breaking, yet catchy melodies that get stuck in your head. “We want to make songs that touch on deeper feelings we all have from time to time; addressing a lot of the fears that our generation is confronted with”, says Hollander. The sound of Miróux, with unique vocals and melancholic melodies, is becoming more and more defined and easy to distinguish.“With synergy in place, relentless drive, and a deluge of talent, M I R Ó U X’s unique sound is quickly gaining recognition from fans and industry professionals alike.
