MIRRORS Festival returns to London this weekend (Saturday 2nd November) and brings with it a range of international talent.
Doors open at 1pm for all venues except Roundhouse’s main stage, which opens at 5pm – 1 hour before Turnover take to the stage. With the stages being so close together you have plenty of time to wander around and discover something new before heading to the main stage.
We strongly recommend catching Wirral rockers The Mysterines (5:30pm, Camden Assembly). Their high-intensity sound has caused waves within the scene; Fred Perry and BBC Introducing being just two of a long-list of admirers. Listen to: Bet Your Pretty Face.
One of the most intriguing acts at this year's MIRRORS is The Soft Cavalry (5:30pm, Sackler Space). The husband-and-wife duo of Steve Clarke and Rachel Goswell (Slowdive) create cinematic soundscapes with eerily glistening vocals across a dozen tracks on their epoymous debut LP. Listen to: Mountains.
Another act we cannot wait to see is Sheer Mag. The Philadelphia, PA quartet have all the hallmarks of seventies rock, but with a punk twang. Latest LP, A Distant Call, features one of our favourite songs of 2019 (Hardly To Blame) and it will be the perfect way to close Dingwalls at 6:30pm. Listen to: Hardly To Blame.
Cass McCombs is the filling in a Turnover/American Football sandwich. His ninth LP, Tip Of The Sphere, is a perfect display of classic rock - with Nick Drake-esque vocals, McCombs' performance is hypnotic throughout and is guaranteed to be just that at 6:30pm on the main stage. Listen to: Sleeping Volcanoes.
Previous editions have featured acts that have gone on to become household names such as Sam Fender, Dream Wife, Bill Ryder Jones and Declan McKenna, so be sure to catch your next favourite act up close and personal.
