After an extremely successful Secret Sky Online Festival, fans have been anxiously awaiting more new music from Porter Robinson. Today, the tastemaker/feels-master/artist extraordinaire is uneleashing his third single from his upcoming Nurture album.
On today’s single, “Mirror”, Porter brings us another ethereal anthem, led by both male and female vocals. Infectious basslines and layered synths create the perfect soundscape for this new single off the highly anticipated Nurture. The song builds and builds throughout, eventually leading into a glitchy melodic breakdown.
“Mirror” sounds a lot like both previous singles, “Get Your Wish” and “Something Comforting”, which isn’t a bad thing at all. The atmosphere Porter has created thus far, in preparation for Nurture, on all three tracks brings a cheery and euphoric feeling to the listener. I’m really looking forward to another cohesive vision delivered from Porter, even as each of these Nurture single has vastly differed from his style on past projects (Worlds, Spitfire, Shelter etc), I’m just so amped for more Porter Robinson music. Check out what he had to say about his newest work.
“Mirror is a song about the costs of being hard on yourself. we all have these avatars that we give to our critical inner voices – we might imagine a scornful parent telling us we’ll fail, or a critic telling us our work comes up short, or a society telling us that we aren’t good enough – it’s about recognizing that most of this criticism is self-inflicted. for years, i was imagining the worst thing a critic might say about my music and looking at my own work as negatively as possible as a way to protect myself from criticism, but it never once served me. my hope is that other people can overcome this same kind of shame – it can be really liberating to recognize that most of the time, we’re only letting our own thoughts get in the way, and we can do something about it.” – Porter Robinson
