I first saw Brisbane four-piece Mitzi last year, and quickly developed a soft spot for them. It came as a huge surprise when I realized I’d never reviewed them. This slight must be rectified immediately.
Their debut EP All I Heard was released last year through Future Classic (who house the likes of Flume, Panama and New Navy), and now they’re readying themselves for the release of a full-length. Due out early next year, the album was mixed in London by Ash Workman, who has worked alongside Metronomy and the Klaxons in the past.
The album’s first single “Who Will Love You Now” sees the band’s garage disco at its best. Dreamy and cheerful, it combines lazy grooves and smooth percussion, bound to please fans of The Whitest Boy Alive or Metronomy. A film clip has been released in conjunction, and can be viewed below.
Aside from me, they’ve already developed a strong following, and have supported the likes of Darwin Deez, Foster the People and Little Dragon on their Australian tours. You can expect to hear a lot more from Mitzi over the next year, and a lot more reviews from this fan.
