In the most recent ink spilled for The New Up, national music news outlet Vanyaland not only previewed their upcoming show at PA’s Lounge in a Boston suburb, but also gives a glowing review of the new album ‘Tiny Mirrors’. The extremely well-written and introspective article provides an illuminating look into the balance between the introverted and extraverted nature of the album. Part review, part preview, and part interview, the dichotomies contained in the album are broken down with precision as Vanyaland comments that ‘Tiny Mirrors’ “exhibits a raw approach to songwriting, capturing a rhythmic pocket that’s anchored by Pitcher’s poetic vocals and Reid’s stellar instrumentation”, and that by “blending blissful electronic-pop and jagged alt-rock, the band brings out a sound that’s accessible and poignant.”
In the interview portion, Pitcher and Reid discuss how the process of recording ‘Tiny Mirrors’ was intertwined with their everyday lives, noting that it “was both a catharsis and the birthing of a creative baby all at once”, and adding that the album itself became “more like another appendage of the band members than just another offering from struggling artists with something crucial to say to the world, although either would be valid characterizations”.
