about

Sound Mirrors UK

Sound Mirrors is a six piece, sunshine-pop and indie-psych act from Essex. The Sound Mirrors band is a wall of close-harmony psych-pop, in turns aggressive and melancholy, but always desperately optimistic. Built around classic song writing, a theatrical edge and a ray of hope, Sound Mirrors is a team of beautiful misfits, dedicated to bringing a little sunshine back to rock and roll. ... more

Track Name: Sunrise (Sunrise EP)
Dreams are eating me whole
I’m lost in a world of sunlight
Are they smiles we stole?
Or are they really ours by birthright?

It’s easy
It’s easy
It just takes you to please me
For now and
Forever
These Days and nights together

Every day is the same in heaven
But it’s more fun down here
Run right out in the rain together
And the storm clouds will clear

I’m falling
In deeper
I walk the earth to see her
Now and
Forever
These days and nights together

She’s the sunrise
And she’s all mine
Watching, waiting
A new day breaking

I never knew that it would turn out nice again today
But now you’re here and it’s so clear that there’s another way
You know I’m used to feeling low I find it hard to smile
I think you’re gonna turn me round in just a little while

[Ba ba ba]

I’m falling
In deeper
I walk the earth to see her
Now and
Forever
These days and nights together

She’s the sunrise
And she’s all mine
Watching, waiting
A new day breaking
Track Name: Blind
Are you blind enough to say
It’s time to call it day
And what’s the point not getting high
It begs the question why
Do we try?
In an age of never ever in the kingdom of whatever you like
And your eyes
Can’t disguise
We can fuck it up forever and you’re never gonna get her

Take a moment out of time
Little ellipsis sublime
You won’t always see the signs
It begs the question why
Do you try?
You won’t ever get together if you never ever sever the tie
In your mind
You’re so blind
You can fuck it up forever and you’re never gonna get her

There’s a ray of hope in all the dreaming that you do
But you’ll never see it through
‘Cause dreaming’s all you do
Open up your heart to all the sunshine and the rain
You must balance out the pain
And then do it all again
Track Name: Suntanned Soul (Sunrise EP)
I saw the light but missed the point
When we were over come
And falling for the yellow boys
It took us thirty thousand days
Before we landed on the sun
And got blinded by the truth

I never worked so hard, I never
Never worked so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul

Staring at defeat again
We should have seen the signs
And listened to the yellow boys
It’s not written in the stars
It’s there upon our hearts
But they never saw the light on day

I never cried so hard, I never
Never cried so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul

[instrumental]

You’ll find me coming back for more
Until the sun burns out
And then we will be born again
So after thirty thousand days
If it takes a million more
It will be worth it to be home again

I never loved so hard, I never
Never loved so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul
Track Name: Pilgrim Fathers
I wish I was a sail
The air would fill be up
Then I’d sail away
And find a brighter day
Into a golden dawn
A Caribbean morn
My love would be the gale
Stormy tempest blowing me along
To help me write this song
To help me wrote this song
Sail set, set sail
Into the ocean blue
The lonely sea for you
And on a distant isle I’ll find my lover’s smile

I wish that I could race
And rocket from our atmosphere
In to the depths of space
And find a better place
A new and cleaner world
Fit for my little girl
My love would be the sun
In fiery brilliance skyward
giving warmth to everyone
to write this song
To help me write this song
Up light, light up
Across the inky night
Lonely universe tonight
And on a distant moon my Love will join me soon

We are pioneers
Pilgrim fathers, into the unknown
Neil Armstrong miles away from home

Let’s go
