Mirror is a flexi/digital single from Bay Area, CA's Wild Moth. It's the first single off their sophomore full-length, Inhibitor, released summer 2015 on Brooklyn indie label Iron Pier. Mirror is available digitally and as a one-time pressing limited flexi 7". Mirror also features a second song, "Gallery of Walls."
Wild Moth are a young, talented post-punk band. On "Mirror," layers of sludgy, darkly textured guitars sit and slide on top of each other, jerking with energy and pulling the listener along a strong melodic underpinning. Think modern shoegaze that mixes spikes of punk-infused energy, like Isn't Anything-era My Bloody Valentine meets Drive Like Jehu. Mirror and Inhibitor were recorded with Oakland producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven) at Atomic Garden Studios as well as at Secret Bathroom Studios with Max Senna (Miserable). SF Weekly called the band "one of the Bay Area's most promising young post-punk bands" and described their sound as departing "from punk's insistent rhythms and concise fury: It's more nuanced, structurally intricate, and melodic." Wild Moth recently released a split with fellow Nor-Cal post-punks Creative Adult, which followed their well-received debut LP Over, Again on Asian Man Records.
