New Zealand new wave rockers Mi-Sex were prominent fixtures of the Australian and NZ music charts in the late 70s/early 80s with their hits Blue Day, Castaway and the iconic Computer Games. Following the unfortunate death of lead singer Steve Gilpin in 1992, the band entered a unanimous retirement. Fast-forward roughly 20 years, the band coaxed out of their hibernation and fronted by Noiseworks Steve Balbi’s have performed a series of well-received shows over the past year.

Mi-Sex instantly strike you as a band of today, not one merely reliving the past. They encompass a musicality and a quality of songwriting that is missing from many contemporary acts. Clearly veterans of their craft, their awareness of vocal styling, musical space and melody is refined and well established, as is their visually polished stage presence. They present a calibre of rock and roll that is rarely seen today, energetic and entertaining while elegant, contrasting a perception of performance that often lends more to antics rather than entertainment. All members look comfortable and engaging on stage, and despite their declaration as a ‘heritage band’, any visual signs of age are immediately forgotten and remain unseen.

The group are musically coherent, refined, tight, and catchy. I was thoroughly surprised and impressed at my sincere enjoyment of the show. Their sound retains the memories of a style of music popularised 30+ years ago, but has evolved to sound modern, fresh and relevant.

Much of the onstage and audible energy can be attributed to vocalist Balbi who soars at the height of his vocal ability. Leaping from low growls to high screeches and powerful roars, adding another layer of interest to the rich musical tapestry created by the band. His showmanship leaves others in its wake, contorting his microphone stand as he jaunts his slim figure amongst the stage and members. He is stunning to watch and a joy to listen to, yet through humility directs the audience’s attention frequently to Mi-Sex the band, away from himself.
