What have ‘Lights & Offerings’, ‘Broken By Silence’, ‘Toe The Line’, ‘Falls By Another Name’ and Perfectly Still’ all got in common? They are all tremendous B-sides from the MIRRORS’ catalogue. And the latest in this impressive lineage is the beautifully stark drama of ‘Between Four Walls’, the flip of their recent self-released single ‘Hourglass’. US blog Bop 2 Pop described the track as “sublime”.
Attentive to minutiae in every aspect of their art, ‘Between Four Walls is accompanied by a stylish kaleidescopic film which appears to have been partly influenced by a fan made driving video of their own ‘Broken In Silence’. Whatever, the visuals totally capture the 3am on the Autobahn feeling of the song.
‘Between These Walls’ and ‘Hourglass’ are available digitally from http://mirrorsofficial.bandcamp.com/
The special 2CD edition of ‘Lights & Offerings’ released by Undo Records featuring all the magnificent songs from their first phase including their B-sides is now available from TEC’s online shop.
