FRESH: ‘Desire’ – Neon Mirrors

Neon Mirrors have “Desire”!

by Christopher Smith

Formed in 2017, Neon Mirrors combine rock and indie influences with electronic dance music to create a unique, irresistible fusion of sound. Blending punchy guitar riffs and epic synth sounds, backed with addictive bass lines and pumping drum beats, Neon Mirrors deliver a brand of music like no other.

Their latest single “Desire” is a track all about lust, chemistry and the acts we take/avoid when confronted with them. The song follows their previous releases “Give You The Earth”, “Invincible” and their debut “Feel A Change”, and blends synth-pop and new wave to entice you in and get you hooked on this upcoming British quartet.

Tom Clarke (vocals & guitar), Charlie Booth (synth), Peter Wilcock (bass guitar) and George Barrell (drums) came together as a 4 piece dance rock band hailing from the South West of England. By collectively utilising their vast experience of composing and performing with previous bands such as Drogo and The Dustbowl Children, Neon Mirrors is constructed with four professional musicians with high-calibre backgrounds and a thirst for a new project with unprecedented enthusiasm.

The group cite their musical interests from Tame Impala, Foals, Daft Punk, Friendly Fires, Battle Tapes to name but a few. Moving away from the conventional, Neon Mirrors combination of influences create a unique, irresistible fusion of sound. Keep your eyes on this lot, they are already making tracks and building a solid fanbase with more new tracks on the way!

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
