(8/10) This EP belongs to the positive surprises these days. The quartet from Bruxelles blends various styles of rock music, resulting in four songs that are dynamic and vital.
Classic rock, a bit of grunge and some hardrock melt, leading a powerful EP that begins with "Funky Queen". The title track is a grooving rock song that brings one of the most important elements of Black Mirrors right into the spotlight - pure energy. The powerful vocals, done by singer Marcella Di Troia, are major element of the bands music that probably works live even better than on disc.
"Kick Out the Jam" is next. The track shifts gears, being a bit faster than the opener. It has a kick-ass approach before "The Mess' unveils the blues influences of Black Mirrors. The final track on this disc is entitled "Canard Vengeur Masque" and is with five minutes play time the longest one on this EP. The song comes with a slower pace and a quite intense expression. In general the tune is anchored in classic rock even though it also includes some moments of Nirvana (You'll find them easily).
Black Mirrors will be on tour through Europe, opening for Horisont which sounds like a good package. So far, enjoy this refreshing EP.
