The Sound Mirrors create a sonic explosion of melody to mend new wave/indie rock into a sound all their own.

Biography

With the release of their LP The Calling in June 2007, The Sound Mirrors were no newcomers to the rock landscape.
Releasing their first album "Signs of Life" in 2004 (under the moniker "Nemo" - a take on Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea), band members Luke McCartney & Dennis Tyhacz earned the worldly praise of rock critics & fans alike. With Left Off The Dial declaring Signs of Life "One of the best albums of the year", and The New York Press proclaiming "Lord knows we've been waiting for Rock and New Wave to marry for a long time"... Putting 60's vocal stylings against a new wave backdrop and putting sonic experimentation between the two, The Sound Mirrors mend the bridge between 60's contemporaries like The Moody Blues, and The Velvet Underground, with 80's New Wave/Alt Rock pioneers like The Cure/New Order, and create their own sound in the process.

Upon the first listen, The Calling echoes the sonic experimentation achieved on Signs of Life, but that's only the beginning of the journey. Honest opinions on the current political landscape and sonic musings make their case, and some of the best damn rock-songs on this side of the pond evolve.

Lyrics

Northern Light

Written By: Dennis Tyhacz/Nemo

Winter wheels turn to weep for yesteryear,
Your sirens calling vessels in the heart of me,

Gratitude is an open reason,
Don't you know that it's open season on me?
And where I'm drifting to?
Give me a reason the Ocean lied to me.

Go ahead and see yourself in Northern Light,
The struggle of man is timed against his apology.

Gratitude is an open reason,
Don't you know that it's open season on me?
And where I'm drifting to?
Give me a reason the Ocean lied to me.

Mystic

Written By: D.Tyhacz

For a moment,
They said you'd comfort me,
You can't buy a reason,
when you take them for free

Water falls down,
then it slips away,
I won't feel any different,
then today,

Mystic ringlets,
Of tracks left in the sand,
liquid paper,
he wants you to hold his hand,

Water falls down,
then it slips away,
I won't feel any different
then today
