Favorite Things About Los Angeles with Miami Horror

In our new series called ‘Favorite Things About Los Angeles’  we’ll be interviewing local influencers along with other touring musicians and artists about the things they like the most about the city of angels.

First up, a quick chat with Australian indietronica band Miami Horror.


Members Benjamin Plant, Josh Moriarty, Aaron Shanahan and Daniel Whitechurch took some time off while on tour for their latest album All Possible Future to spill the beans on where they hang out in L.A. and where they all go for some late night food.

A favorite of local radio station’s like KCRW Miami Horror is influenced by dance pop music from the 1970’s and 1980’s as well as progressive rock and house music. With their dynamic sound they managed produce a unique electronic pop sound that makes you want to get up and dance.

So let’s see what the guys had to say…
