Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Mirror Lady offer up an unyielding message to their listeners with the song “Shapes (Spiderwoman).” The male vocals warn against the she-devil who perils in alcohol and who will “get down with any boy who lets her.”
Starting off with striking resemblance to Local Natives “Wide Eyes,” the reverb-soaked vocals cloak you, eventually taking off with steadfast drumbeats at the 30-second mark. The lo-fi guitars paired with minimal instrumentals and aural despondency combine together to make a rather pleasing ode to the lovelorn.
While bedroom pop is becoming more and more popular, Mirror Lady creates mind-propelling graphics with their track that instantly captures your imagination. Whether you are mentally visualizing spiders taking shape of vixens or women you remember from your past, “Shapes” is a track that will ease the pain lyrically while leaving you with some fine tunage to feast your ears upon.
