The music video for the full version of "Juarez" off the debut EP, "Contents Under Pressure" by Mirage Box.
Mirage Box is a place where magic happens, where illusions seem real, where the oasis is lavish, inviting and tantalizing. It is where secrets are kept, truths are told, dreams come alive, and where imaginative music thrives.
Mirage Box's music has been described as "modern retro"; a celebration for the great songwriting and music production of the artist heyday of the late 60s and through the 70s. Mirage Box's music and writing style reflects the various flavors of pop and rock music of the classic rock era, from lush ballads to psychedelic trippyness, high-energy rock to playful punk, Chicago soul, Prog Rock, a dash of metal and liberal vocal harmonies. Mirage Box's music production employs many of the classic sounds and instruments of the by-gone era, but with a modern slant. Mirage Box aims to create soundscapes, painting scenes with music that takes listeners on journeys. Fans of album rock and headphone audiophiles will appreciate Mirage Box's compositions.
Mirage Box is a creative collaboration between Nick Coppola, a prolific songwriter and lyricist, and Chris Capozza, a multi-instrumentalist audio engineer and music producer. Mirage Box seeks to be indefinable to one genre of music. Influenced by The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Yes, Kansas, Genesis, Dream Theater, CS&N, The Who, Pink Floyd, Eagles, Sex Pistols, Chicago, Styx, Asia, Jim Croce, Jimmy Buffet, Soundgarden, Boston and Steely Dan, writers Nick and Chris combine various styles as the vehicles of their original music, often employing Mellotrons, MiniMoogs, B3s and Leslies, Taurus Pedals, doublenecks, Rickenbackers, Hofners, Les Pauls, Telecasters as well as orchestral and brass sections to create epic music, brimming with melodies, countermelodies, cannons, counterpoints and lush vocal harmonies. There is something for everyone in Mirage Box’s music, and always new elements to be discovered.
So put on the headphones, turn down the lights, sit back, relax and join us on a musical journey as we present the contents in the Mirage Box.
