MIAOUX MIAOUX is 27-year-old Glasgow based producer Julian Corrie, who makes hypercolour indie dance pop that recalls the best of Caribou, Erlend Oye and Four Tet. After a series of self-released records, and acclaimed shows across England and Scotland, he is the newest signing to the renowned Chemikal Underground Records.

The new album, ‘Light of the North’, released on June 11th, is already attracting rave reviews from blogs and press worldwide. With a stunning live show, where improvised loops and guitars collide with live drums, fizzing synths and low-slung bass, as well as producing slamming remixes for the likes of Silver Columns and Discopolis, Miaoux Miaoux looks set to make an indelible mark on 2012.

The Times: "A hyperactive synth troubadour in the vein of Dan Black or Frankmusik, singing glitteringly melodic electronic pop songs that fizz with ideas" ****

Joe Muggs (eMusic): "Matches a wonderfully unguarded indie-pop sensibility to clean and confident dance-pop synths. That Corrie can combine these elements successfully is impressive; that he can do it with style, and while creating insanely memorable songs, is even more so" *****

The Line of Best Fit: "Miaoux Miaoux caters in stunning sonic collages, delicately pieced together from pacey bit beats, chopped electronics, pealing synths, ringing acoustic guitars and his clear pristine vocal that carries an array of sweet pop melodies across the top"

The List: "A perfect example of how good pop music can be if it’s driven by a restless intelligence."

AUTUMN HANG

"Autumn Hang is the new name for former Peel faves The Bomb Circle. Having released 65 CDRs on the Spooky Kermit label under various guises in various genres it's time to go techno-pop(ish)...Recent releases have garnered rave reviews in Wire magazine (no mean feat!) with The Bomb Circle having recently provided music for the forthcoming British independent film 'Fit-Boy' whilst The Golden Wires post rock stuff can be found on soundcloud.

First gig since the tribute night for Ivor Cutler at the Lemon Tree some time ago...new band email address

Miaoux Miaoux - Light of the North5star.gif

This is a perfect example of how good pop music can be if it’s driven by a restless intelligence. Miaoux Miaoux, aka Julian Corrie, has been turning heads with his distinctive electro-pop sound for a while, but this first album for Chemikal Underground takes things up several levels. Infused with a glitchy, indie ethic throughout, this is nevertheless gloriously melodic dance-pop genius, with echoes of mainstream acts like Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and the long missed Avalanches. Half the tracks here could be hit singles given a following wind, but Corrie also imbues the likes of ‘Stop the Clocks’ and closer ‘Ribbon Falls’ with a heart and soul absent in most electronic music. Ass-shaking and heart-warming, this is thrilling stuff.
