Los Angeles quintet Young the Giant expertly juxtapose their adventurous spirit with fearless grace on their new album Mirror Master, that features singles “Simplify” and "Superposition.” As the band’s fourth album, Mirror Master follows 2016's critically acclaimed album Home of the Strange. Mirror Master comes at a time when we are engulfed in points of conflict and scrutiny, yet with this album Young the Giant have found some space to breathe.
Lead singer Sameer Gadhia explains “What we forget to realize is that the image that reflects is just an illusion. Like the world, we are made up of fictions of things people tell us. How we should dress, what we should believe in, what type of stock to invest in, how we should vote. What is our free will, if we trudge across tracks already traveled?
If there is nothing else we control; nothing else new, we are at least in control of ourselves; can make our paths novel and undefined; shatter categories, stereotypes, and roles. Do what we want to do, think freely and not how others tell us to—live beneath the surface of things.”
