Nashville-based artist Thad Kopec unveils an intimate, haunting sound on the engrossing new track “Mirror.” Acoustical trickles and a lush key progression accompany his mellow vocals to start, transitioning around 01:30 to a more buzzing sound with brooding expansion. Aesthetically, the track reminds of Sufjan Stevens, particularly his work on The Age of Adz. The backing vocals from Louise Hayat-Camard also play well.
“‘Mirror’ is about growing older and the human perspective of time,” Kopec explains. “It looks curiously at the eerie feeling of being in a different body than the one you were in yesterday. I find that feeling to be beautiful, too. Whether the mirror shows the truth or not, or whether light leaks in the process of reflecting – these aren’t questions with answers, and if they are, the answers don’t hold any meaning above what the questions themselves do.”
“Mirror” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2018’ Spotify playlist.
