Miranda and The Beat

Miranda and The Beat are a Rock and Roll band, with all that the term might entail. Drawing from the traditional rock music, as performed by the likes of The Dirt Bombs, The B-52’s, MC5, and Ronnie Spector, Miranda and The Beat operate from a clear-eyed appreciation of the greats and a healthy, barn-burning disregard for tropes or traditionalist limitations. Garage, soul, punk, classic rock… pick your poison; the band has plenty to spare.

Arriving in New York City in 2018, the band have, through songwriting and performance, proved themselves to be both an essential spark and spearhead to a scene of new blood rockers bringing a much-needed renewal of energy to the New York City (garage, rock, whatever) scene. Originally a duo of 21-year-old guitarist/vocalist Miranda Zipse and 21-year-old drummer Kim “The Beat” Sollecito, the pair quickly added a full band and soon became known for their tireless, wheel-on-fire live sets driven by Miranda’s captivating stage presence, vocal prowess, and her pyrotechnic (but never indulgent!), melodically slashing guitar work.

Their live reputation (and a reputation for being neither pushovers nor scumbags) led to collaborations with such childhood idols as The Mystery Lights and Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Soon there was the release of their 7” single Such A Fool, on Jack White’s Third Man Records. One pandemic later, between days/nights spent sweating out piss, vinegar, and trackloads of tears in the studio, and a rigorous, borderline ridiculous, rehearsal schedule, Miranda and The Beat are, at this juncture, practically monstrous in both sound and vision, and ready to meet the world.
