Desert Road Records presents

Miriam Clancy

special guest/s to be announced

New York-based New Zealander Miriam Clancy returns with new album Astronomy!!

"With hints of Cocteau Twins and CHRVCHES entwined in the song, it has a bassline that reverberates and rolls like an unexpected thunderstorm on a summer’s day" (The Sound) Analogue Trash (UK)

After a decade between records, Miriam Clancy’s third album, Astronomy, marks her return to the musical landscape. For longtime fans, Astronomy is a reintroduction and a reinvention. Its ten songs represent a cathartic fork in the road borne out of existential crisis and the new territory is evident. Crafted over a couple of years in New York City with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Astronomy is laden with swooning electric guitars, Wurlitzers, early 90’s drum machines and analogue synths.

Astronomy has already been released in the US to critical acclaim and now it's time to bring it back home with a run of the first NZ shows in eight years.

With special guest/s to be announced.

“Miriam Clancy and her dream theater aesthetic of "The Sound" will transport you - with deep cut bass, drum grooves and dreamy synths - It is a blend of post punk, 80's new wave, goth, baroque pop and magic itself"
 - Robb Dunker, American Pancake [US]

“Astronomy, a shoegaze alt-pop extravaganza featuring Miriam’s angelic voice accompanied by her penchant for hook-filled chord progressions and poetic lyrics.”  - Jammerzine (US)

"She's one of our top singer-songwriters. The critics wax effusive" - Gary Steele, Metro (NZ)

“A voice to move mountains" - (Magnetic) Russell Baillie, NZ Herald
