Georgia Mulligan’s ‘Mirror’ is a Masterful Epic
Sitting at just over five and a half minutes, Georgia Mulligan’s latest single ‘Mirror” ambles its way to epic in the most beautiful of fashions.
Built on a base of spacious guitars and a slow slapping snare, Mirror, is a song that that gradually opens itself to the listener. Each element unravelling and falling into place with a finesse that feels natural. Mulligan’s vocals themselves flipping from sleepy to soaring in a snap; there’s a duality in the delivery of ‘Mirror’ that feels fierce. A fierceness enforced when the slow-burner of a song peaks at points flooded with layers, subtle complexity and genuinely huge scope.
A song of emotional strife, Mirror, takes on topics of betrayal of trust and the damage done in its wake. Anger, anguish and confusion clashing and driving themselves forward through a stream of consciousness that strikes its hardest as Mulligan hits home lyrics that harbour a deep relatability. “Cause I’ve been down this road and I’ve been over it, my patience is not what it was in those days” sees in the second chorus with a palpable feeling of apathy that you can feel.
Mirror is a big song about breaking and breaking up that shines brilliant.
