The much-missed Mirrors were sometimes accused of being too derivative of early OMD. As if that was a bad thing. Here they are, live in Barcelona, saving electronic music.
Mirrors took some stick for wearing their OMD influences on their sleeves, but few acts in recent times have managed to sound as magisterial as the Brighton-based outfit did on this track. Although it provided vital signs of hope for British indietronica, a second album was not to be before the band dissolved amidst the pressure to sound less like their heroes. It’s a shame, because OMD certainly didn’t mind.
