Pioneers of the downunder new wave scene Mi-Sex are sharing their first single in 25 years. The group, which originally formed in New Zealand in 1977 and relocated to Sydney in 1979, are perhaps best known for their unstoppable single 'Computer Games'.

Mi-Sex took an extended break in 1984, and were writing and demoing fresh material, but tragically lost founding singer Steve Gilpin in 1992 following an automobile accident. In 2011, the band reformed with former Noiseworks bass player Steve Balbi taking up vocal duties, and with a renewed energy Mi-Sex began playing packed-out live shows around Australia. 

“I never intended to fill Steve Gilpin's shoes," explains Balbi. "I just brought my own shoes in the hope that Mi-Sex fans would walk with me as the new singer of their beloved band. I love carrying the flag for Steve Gilpin and do so with great respect”.

The new track 'Somebody' is the band's first fresh material since the 1980s and will feature on upcoming EP Extended Play, which is slated for release on February to coincide with their 'Clash Of The Titans' tour with The Angels and Dragon...
