No word of a lie, the first names of Mirrorkicks are Gerard, Edwin, Ingmar and Anil. They met at school in South London and their shared love of unconventional names led to them forming a band (actually I made that up – but it’d be as good a reason as any). They certainly don’t categorise easily. There’s a plethora of rock influences from Three Colours Red to Red Hot Chilli Peppers to a falsetto Reef. They even sound like Republica at points, which can only have come about having not heard said band. No-one would deliberately choose to go down that road, would they? They rock along in quite a gentle way to no obvious conclusion. Potential yes. Finished article? Not quite yet.
