Miranda! is an Argentine electro pop band formed in 2001. Band members include Alejandro Sergi (vocals), Juliana Gattas (vocals), Lolo Fuentes (guitar), Bruno de Vincenti (programming), and since 2003, Nicolás Grimaldi (bass). The group has found success throughout Latin America as well as in the United States and Europe.

History[edit]

In 2001, Alejandro Sergi teamed up with Juliana Gattas, Lolo Fuentes, and Bruno de Vincenti to form Miranda!, labeling their style as melodramatic electropop. Named after Argentinean actor Osvaldo Miranda, the group finally met the actor in December 2002 during the Buen Dia Arriba Festival in Palermo Viejo.

Their popularity grew around the Buenos Aires underground music circuit, based on their peculiar music, style, and looks. Their unique live performances, in which the band members "acted out" the lyrics of their songs, gained them a great amount of followers, as well as a number of prizes on such publications as the Argentine version of the Rolling Stone Magazine, which named them the Revelation Band of 2002.

The same year, they released their first album, Es Mentira, which would spawn five singles: "Bailarina", "Imán", "Tu Juego", "Agua" and "Romix".

In 2004 Miranda! edited their second album, entitled Sin Restricciones, which would mean the mainstream breakthrough of the band, with hits like "Yo Te Diré" or "Don", which would go on to be one of the most downloaded ringtones in the world by 2005. Other singles out of this album were "Navidad", "El Profe", "Uno los Dos" and recently "Traición".

In between the albums, they released an EP containing three new tracks that were formerly the theme songs of very successful soap operas from Argentina, "Quiereme...tengo frío" ("Love me, I'm cold") from Piel Naranja, starring Arnaldo André and Marilina Ross in 1975; "Una lágrima sobre el teléfono" from Una voz en el teléfono, starring Carolina Papaleo and Raúl Taibo in 1990; and "Esa extraña dama" from the soap opera with the same name, starring Luisa Kuliok and Jorge Martínez. These songs were performed at the 2006 Martín Fierro Awards TV show, and then released as a single CD in Argentina.

"Prisionero", the first single off their new album El Disco de tu Corazón, became a #1 hit in their native Argentina. However, the second single "Perfecta" with Mexican singer Julieta Venegas became an even bigger hit worldwide, topping the charts in many Spanish-speaking countries.

The newest single from El Disco de tu Corazón is simply-called "Hola", and is the first to be released in 2009. The video from "Hola" is comic-based on a narrated chat communication between two people who end up having sex in a room.
