"Mirror North" is the A-side of a new 2-song 7" from the band, WHOOP-Szo. There's something possible familiar about the QUIETLOUDQUIET transitions, a Pixies device that's gained some value with this track, but the overall presentation is nicely arranged, some brooding bass melody and soft melodic accents that beautify for melancholic effect. Then the volume goes up, the distortion chars. There are also some interesting, albeit loose, Slint derivations incorporated at the bridge.
You can sample the track below.
If you like what you hear, you can purchase the single here. The official release date is 4.18: Record Store Day.
