The word "music revival" normally implies two sorts of bands: acts that try and recreate authentic facsimiles of history, and others that hold a mirror to the past, drawing inspiration from it while opening fresh dialogues and contributing something new to the conversation. Brooklyn-based Shining Mirrors is the latter kind of band, reflecting their influences in gritty garage and indie rock and yet possessing a sound whose time period is much more difficult to place. The track's quality pop songwriting is in part reminiscent of the overlooked Scottish genius of the '80s Lloyd Cole & the Commotions. Check out below "Everybody is Christ," (a track that ends with a quote of a quote, the Ramones quoting the Rivieras) and see what I mean. - Olivia Sisinni
