Born from the suburban outskirts of Albany, Alta Mira craft sturdy pop-rock for the chronically self-conscious. Employing the standard-issue tools of rock-and-roll, the four-piece outfit creates tricky rhythmic landscapes, unexpected grooves and infectious melodies, all tied up into tight bundles of pop song goodness. It's Joe Jackson in Chuck Taylors.
Alta Mira have garnered solid regional standing with the releases of The Fables and Fabrications EP in 2007 and their self titled full-length in 2009. The band has brought their tight and dynamic live performance throughout the Northeast, opening for acts as diverse as Ra Ra Riot, Lisa Germano and The New Deal. Look for their new full-length release in the Summer of 2011.
