MP3 The Sound Mirrors - The Calling
Putting 60''s vocal stylings against a new wave backdrop and sonic experimentation between the two, mending the bridge between 60''s contemporary artists with 80''s New Wave/Alt Rock pioneers, and creating their own sound in the process.

This Brooklyn, NY based project is the brainchild of Luke McCartney & Dennis Tyhacz. With the upcoming release of their LP "THE CALLING" in June 2007, The Sound Mirrors are no newcomers to the rock landscape.
Releasing their first album "Signs of Life" in 2004 (under the moniker "Nemo" - a take on Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea), McCartney & Tyhacz earned the worldly praise of rock critics & fans alike. With Left Off The Dial declaring Signs of Life "One of the best albums of the year", and The New York Press proclaiming "Lord knows we''ve been waiting for Rock and New Wave to marry for a long time"... Putting 60''s vocal stylings against a new wave backdrop and putting sonic experimentation between the two, The Sound Mirrors mend the bridge between 60''s contemporaries like The Moody Blues, and The Velvet Underground, with 80''s New Wave/Alt Rock pioneers like The Cure/New Order, and create their own sound in the process.
Upon the first listen, THE CALLING echoes the sonic experimentation achieved on Signs of Life, but that''s only the beginning of the journey. Honest opinions on the current political landscape and sonic musings make their case, and some of the best damn rock-songs on this side of the pond evolve.
