Miami Horror's Favourite Record Covers

Miami Horror's Favourite Record Covers

The indie-dance legends are back with a new single, Leila.

It’s been two long years since Melbourne outfit Miami Horror released All Possible Futures, and today they've finally made their return to the global dance music soundscape with new single, Leila, taken from forthcoming EP The ShapesLeila is almost vintage Miami Horror, but updated to 2017, drenched in summery 80s synths with some funky-as hell percussion and the iconic Miami Horror vocals. To celebrate its release (which comes with some beautiful cover art by Lynnie Zulu - art is going to be a large part of the group's releases this go around), the group gave us a few of their favourite album covers over time. Check 'em out below once you've tucked into the single, and catch Miami Horror live on a big run of dates, including their own block parties in Melbourne and Sydney, and the Hot Dub Wine Machine Tour (all down the bottom).

MIAMI HORROR'S FAVOURITE ALBUM COVERS

Icehouse - Man Of Colours

Simplicity, lines and primary colours. All things we're working with a lot on our new artwork.

Lillian Allen - Conditions Critical

I love the colours of this cover and the hand painted feel. It has a very nostalgic look.

Heart - Magazine

I've always been a fan of covers with 'holes' or 'windows' to another world. I've always found circles have the strongest effect in doing that.

Genesis - Abacab

They had multiple versions of this album cover. A big fan of ripped paper. Abstract art is very influential on our new EP.

Grace Jones - Island Life

Iconic.

Michael Jackson - Dangerous

The busiest, most intricate cover of all time. Shows the depth, mysetery and weirdness of Michael Jackson.
