Mirror Lady dropped 'Shapes' onto my SoundCloud a couple of days ago, without even a message to explain its impromptu arrival. Upon an inquiring listen however, I realised they didn't have to. Based in Boston, Massachusetts, this is simple lo-fi guitar pop at its very best. The unmistakable male vocals relay a message of warning against the opposite sex, backed by confident harmonies and supported by truly interest-grabbing percussion work. It's a straightforward indie pop gem, with some engrossing lyrical metaphors thrown in to balance that out: "In nothing but your t-shirt / she holds you to the wall / and wraps her web till you can't move at all".
