Miranda! he has been making his music vibrate for 20 years

“When we did the group we wanted something that we liked to go see and that we thought there wasn’t. It was nothing new in its entirety, but it was a combination of a little bit of each thing and that achieved an original result ”, he admits. Ale Sergi to MDZ within hours of appearing with Juliana Gattas in Mendoza after four years.

At the beginning of this millennium, the duo broke into the Buenos Aires music scene and did not do so timidly. Cemento was the nightclub that saw them being born and growing up and this generated misgivings in other bands that played there since, until then, it was an emblematic and cult rock space. Ale and Juli spared nothing and their shows were daring, full of color and in their repertoire, mainly pop reigned.

“When we appeared, many people did not agree so much or did not understand the wave so much. There was another who rejoiced and supported us twice as much, because it was something that generated extreme emotions, “she recalls with a laugh and adds:” It was what I expected to happen because if everyone thinks it’s okay, it’s kind of weird; if everyone thinks it’s wrong … well, you went; and if nobody thinks it is anything, it is also a stroke. The issue is to generate a bit of noise, controversy and I think that is what happened with Miranda! ”. “When we appeared, many people did not agree so much or did not understand the wave so much.

– Once I heard you say that when the group emerged they did not expect to release a single album, what do you think it was that allowed them to remain in force all these years?

– We really like what we do, we take care of it and try to improve. The challenge really is that: every show, every song, every album, every video, every little moment that we share and that we decide to share with the people who follow us, and those who might eventually see us, we make sure it’s the best we can. do. There is a lot of magic in this race too. There are things that are inexplicable, but what is very clear is that if you work conscientiously and put love to what you do, people receive it.

– In two decades many things changed, what changes do you notice in the public that accompanies them?

– That costs me a lot. What I put in common is that everyone comes wanting to dance, to have a good time, they know what show they are going to see and that is a bit of what we also offer: a moment of relaxation, lust and delirium. The party spirit is always present in our audience, no matter what age or where we play. I am surprised because every so often there is a kind of renewal: fans who follow us from the beginning, they did not follow us anymore and then they came back; and there are many new people joining. This year, for a few months Don was trending on TikTok and suddenly, a lot of children appeared. We are a very popular group and I am not referring to the amount of convocation, but to the feeling we have with people, they know what we are and it is clear, they come arranged that way.

Miranda! – Por Amar al Amor (Official Video)

– What is the greatest achievement and the biggest obstacle you have had in your career?

– Having stayed together with Juliana. That is to say, it is not an obstacle because nobody puts stones in a wheel but it is not easy to maintain a relationship for so long, and less in these conditions, but we have achieved it. We are happy, happy with what we do, we have a good time. I consider it to be our greatest achievement because that would have been the most difficult and so far we have succeeded.

– A recurring theme in your songs is love, where does the inspiration to compose come from?

– From disparate places. In truth, of disparate stories … some invented, others that have happened, either from the same person who writes or from someone who told them, or from movies. It’s a mix, it’s a lot of songs and there are a lot of different ones. It is true that they are about love but I think they are about the internal sensations that those loves provoke. They talk about different types of love: family, friendship, music, different things. It is very difficult, because one wants to write one thing and then another comes out and each one takes it as they please, but it is a kind of catharsis of what human relationships unleash in one.

– Each of your albums has a carefully thought-out concept, why did you call the last one ‘Souvenir’?

– It’s a memory of us. We were turning 20 when the album was going to come out and then, people could come to the concert and have the souvenir, the memory. The musical concept of the album has to do in some way with self-referencing, something that we had never done before, or maybe yes, but not consciously. We wanted each song on the album to recall the spirit of Miranda’s classic repertoire! They are songs that easily sneaked onto the show list because, in a way, we felt like they were from the same family but because we purposely searched for it. In other albums we always tried to incorporate new things, new, different rhythms, always without moving away from our wave but trying to spice it up with things that we did not have in previous ones. In this no, we relaxed and did everything the other way around: we imagined it as a ‘great unreleased hits’.
