What Mira Lu Kovacs has created both on stage and on record over the past few years is of such great stylistic variety that genre definitions are moot. A vagueness of some kind leaves room for the instrumental virtuosity, compositional originality and the stories told through her music.
Mira released three albums under the stage name SCHMIEDS PULS: “Play Dead” (2013), “I Care A Little Less About Everything Now” (2015) and “Manic Acid Love” (2018). They established her as a master of her craft and won her an Amadeus Austrian Music Award (2016). She also started a spectacular experience outside of her main project with experimental pop-Supergroup 5KHD, took over a role in a play (“Ganymed in love”) and earned prestigious bookings as a well-liked performer, most recently at the opening of the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna Festival) in May.
“Mira’s vocals might be delicately serene, but her lyrics don’t hold anything back – from darker introspective thoughts to lurching, accusatory demands. “Come a little closer”, she sings gently on “Don’t Love Me Like That” – “I might bite your head off…” (Wonderland Magazine)
