Miranda and The Beat are an unapologetic Rock band that burst through the scene in NYC sometime in 2018. Helmed by a duo of then 21-year-old guitarist/vocalist Miranda Zipse and 21-year-old drummer Kim “The Beat” Sollecito, and their team of instrumentalists, the band has forged their path with their distinct energetic live performances filled with raging emotions, rousing guitar arrangements and of course Miranda's commanding vocal presence. Their latest effort titled "Never Hold Back" is a bonus track off King Khan's original score to The Invaders on Ernest Jenning Record Co. / Khannibalism (pre-order).
The track was recorded in Germany while the pair alongside King Khan share drinks and musical tastes with Khan presenting them with the “Never Hold On,” instrumental. The result is a soul-gripping piece where Miranda fully displays her rage as she pours her heart on wax while paying homage to the struggle of our real Indian warriors, be it the Mohawks, Blackfoot or Anishinaabe. She delivers a resounding performance reminding us of the sacrifice and foundation the heroes of our past laid and how we have to carry on the fight and never hold back or be moved away.
King Khan adds, “The greatest gift I could ever receive is having one of my daughters sing a song I wrote about the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The struggles he faced are still the same, and my family chooses music as our weapon.
