Maria & the Mirrors are a London-based FFM trio who subvert the frantic overload of power electronics, dancehall and noise by injecting it with a luridly wasted shot of exotic glamour.Collaborating with Mark Rutherford (one half of Kodiak, the Numbers-signed future-flash electronic duo who scored a hit with the celebrated Spreo Superbus earlier this year) Gemini Enjoy My Life is the follow-up to last year’s acclaimed Travel Sex EP and significantly up’s the production value of that raw blast whilst simultaneously pushing their noise to the point of rupture. It’s pure bliss-panic, sirens and sub-bass - an extreme carnivalesque collapse that will take your head off. Mudchute on the flip is, frankly, fucking terrifying – a possible nervous breakdown in the dancehall, a relentless pulverising captivating explosion of gabba gamelan and banshee anguish. In stark and surprising contrast Vindicatrix turns out a beautifully understated acid-house remix of the A-side as an exclusive download with the 12”. 2011 saw Maria & the Mirrors release their EP 'Travel Sex' to favourable hysterics from NME, Wire & the Quietus, tour Europe, play at Ray Davies' Meltdown Festival, open the Postmodernism exhibition at London's V&A Museum & get nominated for Best Electro Act 2011 in the inaugural Artrocker Awards. Their eclectic sound has been influenced by acts such as Throbbing Gristle, DAF & Lady Saw & likened to contemporaries such as Gang Gang Dance & OOIOO. Pending 2012 performances include Faust’s Avantgarde Festival (June) and Holland’s Incubate Festival (September).
Maria & the Mirrors feature:
• Relentless double drum kit set up • Shards of piercing taped found sounds hanging off a Diwali riddim
• Strikingly transportative fem vox • Harsh Industrial textures harnessed to an whirlwind mix of danceable styles - always banging.
