Get ready Australia. Miramar has hit the independent Australian music scene running. Daryn St Pierre of the New Review recently wrote “there is no doubt that Miramar is a force to be reckoned with”. Miramar are a standout among the barrage of Australian independent rock bands with their euphoric beats, melodies and a sound unlike any other. Described as “alternative and progressive, with hardcore characteristics”, Miramar are carving out their own genre of music. Since the release of Miramar’s debut album “Fight Lights up the Skies” in January, 2010, and the digital release on iTunes, Miramar have been in demand by venues, the public and musical events throughout Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Newcastle. The bands feature track ‘We are the Future’ has received radio rotation in 18 countries around the world including: Brazil, Germany, Switzerland, UK, South Africa and throughout the US. Miramar completed their first film clip to the track ‘We are the Future’ in 2010 ( and in May 2011 won the Triple J Unearthed competition to have their film clip for ‘Fights Light up The Skies’ produced by the National Institute of Dramatic Arts. In their short time on the music scene Miramar have reached and held the number one spot on Triple J Unearthed with their hits “So far gone”, “Self Destruction”, “We are the Future” and ‘Breathe’. Miramar has shared the stage with some of Australia’s best known bands such as Grinspoon, Dead letter Circus, Butterfingers, Mammal, Jericco, The Lazys and Art vs Science and always perform to a captivated audience. Miramar is a band blessed with both strength and intellect, and are forcing their way through the Australian music industry with their thundering sound and thick fan base. Even the harshest live music critics are blown away by the high-powered, tireless intensity of the bands live performance and the forceful messages poured into the lyrics by front man Craig Paterson. Miramar will play a big role in the future of Australian music and particularly in the rock, alternate genre. Miramar’s rise is bound to surge in the coming months of 2011 with the release of their second album, film clip and capital city tour. "Watch out Australia, Miramar are a force to be reckoned with"
