The project of Denver native Kate Warner, Mirror Fears taps into a brooding and wickedly smart strain of dark pop on the new EP Re//Think. With lines like, “Too late to break these chains of duality,” Mirror Fears ventures into territory blazed by Swedish duo The Knife, posing some heady ideas in the guise of gloomy dance production and displaced beats.
In town at The Compound, Mirror Fears is coming off a performance at Stargayzer Fest, Austin’s LGBT music celebration. With the two-spirit electro-psych of Saakred (who also just performed at Stargayzer) and the odd pop duo of Calico Club, this Wednesday night showcase is an exciting evening on the borders of electronic music.
