The Hall Of Mirrors aren't an especially new band in the general scheme of things. Yet they'll probably be new to your ears. Indeed, that's why they're one of the acts playing at tonight's Guardian New Band Of The Day gig at the Barfly in London. Their soothing psychedelic pop evokes memories of a bygone era.
While the band have been going for a couple of years now, their debut 'Love Child' EP only came out this February and coverage has been relatively sparse (aside from fervent supporters like Breaking More Waves) until recent months. We can see why The Hall Of Mirrors are starting to attract attention however. Take, 'Love Child' for example, with its inspiring sixties nostalgia.
In many respects, they are similar to another band that we're fond of, Liverpudlian trio Stealing Sheep, who woo us with their dulcet vocals and have a penchant for the psychedelic. The Hall Of Mirrors add a calming dream-pop element to their music, entirely appropriate considering they are named after the gloriously beautiful gallery at the Palace Of Versailles.
