Miranda and The Beat - "Concrete"

We only bring you music we truly like here at If It's Too Loud..., and every so often we find something that's absolutely thrilling that we can't wait to share with you. We're thrilled to bring you the latest from Miranda and The Beat. "Concrete" throws back to the early 00's indie scene that put New York City back on the musical map, and just amps that up. The song starts off with this dance beat, and then Miranda Zipse comes in with vocals like a mash up of John Lydon (without the racism) and Jello Biafra. And then there's the bass line and guitar that just cut you straight through to the bone. There's an energy to Miranda and The Beat and an explosiveness that is going to inject a shot of adrenaline directly into your soul. "Concrete" is one of the most exciting songs we've heard this year, and we're going to be immediately jumping on the Miranda and The Beat bandwagon.

Miranda Zipse says of the band's new song:

"As a bartender in NYC for the past five years, I've found it's almost impossible to kick people out at 4am, 5am, 6am, whenever! No one ever wants to leave the bar, they'll just beg to have 'afters' or hit another one. This song is about traversing the 12,000 miles of concrete around NYC just to keep the party alive."

You can watch the video for "Concrete" below. Miranda and The Beat's self-titled debut is due out May 26 on Ernest Jenning Record Co and Khannibalism. The album can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Miranda and The Beat, check out the band on .
