'Mirrors' is the new single from Talking Pictures, released May 23rd through Split Records. Balancing gratifying pop hooks with intelligent,
creative melodies, Talking Pictures weave rough-edged synth sounds with their cutting, angular guitars to create a shimmering slice of glacial
indie-pop. 'Mirrors' will be available on 7", featuring remixes from Is Tropical, Voluntary Butler Scheme and Joe and Will Ask.
Mixed by Britt Myers (Yeasayer), 'Mirrors' is a shining example of Talking Pictures' staple sound, which was born through the ambitious vision of singer and guitarist Nicholas Harrision. Through meeting keyboard player and self-confessed electronics geek Andy Hall-Hall, the band's sound became realised: "I remember the first thing Nicholas said to me was that he wanted it to be like Motown, but with electronics - like Ray Charles meets Justice," says Andy.
Talking Pictures soon took this original blueprint and warped it to create spikey, synth-laden indie, injected with huge, euphoric choruses. Like many great pop songwriters, Talking Pictures use their instantly accessible melodies to push darker themes. Of 'Mirrors', Nicholas says: "It's sort of a cautionary tale. It's about going out and getting a bit too messed up, and realising you have to take a look at yourself."
The band have shared stages with the likes of The Naked and Famous and Monarchy and can be seen touring venues and festivals across this summer, including a date at Brighton's Great Escape on 12th May.
'Mirrors' is released on 7" through Split Records on May 23rd and available now through all good digital retailers.
