Tadgh Billy King – “mirror”


A dynamic production spanning from late-night brooding to erupting rock fervency, “mirror” is a stirring single from Irish artist Tadgh Billy King. Quivering vocal suaveness drives into the ominous guitar pulses past the first minute, culminating in an erupting burst of impassioned vocals and heavy guitar distortion. “mirror” intrigues with its dynamic tonal peaks and valleys within a stirring alt-rock and post-punk intertwining.

Aesthetically gripping with its structural climaxes and Bauhaus inspirations, “mirror” is a sturdy success from the Tadgh Billy King, who “wrote this as a way to examine himself and how he has grown as a person in the last years and the work there is still left to do.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2023’ Spotify playlist.
