Mira's guitarist Tom Parker, vocalist Regina Sosinski, drummer Alan Donaldson and bass guitarist Sam Riles first formed the band "Still" in 1996. While hanging around the Cow Haus in 1999, it picked up Mark Davidson as a second guitarist.
In 2000, the final member of the quintet, Melody Fleck, was added to the lineup as a bass guitarist, replacing Riles. Since changing the band name to "Mira", these enthusiasts of chorus guitar have been creating gloomy melodies in the vein of the Cure and Lush.
Later in 2000, Mira produced its self-titled debut album with Projekt Records. Parker said this debut record "represents the 'old' Mira." Parker emphasizes that Mira is in no way trying to bury its past, but recognizes that the band has changed and grown musically in the past few years.
Their music got influences ranging from classical music to bands such as Mogwai, Radiohead and Ride.
The music is heavily textured, using a lot of effects pedals and dynamic shifts
