Shining Mirrors Releases New Single, "Johanna"

Drew Robinson’s project Shining Mirrors draws attention for reimagining the decadent folk-rock developed in historic NYC venues when the epicenter of the city's rock'n'roll was still Manhattan's West village. The third "folkier" Velvet Underground album resonates in single "Joanna," mixed with echoes of, perhaps, the Kinks and Pavement. The group dropped their debut EP in 2017, but this new single, a preview of their sophomore release, gives the impression that the sonic cards have been thoroughly shuffled - check the band's Facebook page for news about the release date. - Susan Moon

Band on the rise: Shinning Mirrors' old-school garage with a modern pop twist

The word "music revival" normally implies two sorts of bands: acts that try and recreate authentic facsimiles of history, and others that hold a mirror to the past, drawing inspiration from it while opening fresh dialogues and contributing something new to the conversation. Brooklyn-based Shining Mirrors is the latter kind of band, reflecting their influences in gritty garage and indie rock and yet possessing a sound whose time period is much more difficult to place. The track's quality pop songwriting is in part reminiscent of the overlooked Scottish genius of the '80s Lloyd Cole & the Commotions. Check out  below "Everybody is Christ," (a track that ends with a quote of a quote, the Ramones quoting the Rivieras) and see what I mean. - Olivia Sisinni
