Alt Soul singer/songwriter MIRROR SIGNAL drops new single ahead of new EP Since taking stage for BBC Introducing at The Montreal Jazz Festival in July, 22-year-old Steven Barker (AKA Mirror Signal) has released the first track from his up-coming EP and after ‘Try’ gained support across BBC Radio 1 (and 2), 6 Music, Radio X, Red Bull and a host of Hype Machine blogs he now announces the 2nd release from the EP. Listen here.
‘Shelter’ picks up the pace somewhat from ‘Try’ and sees Mirror Signal reveal a more groove based arrangement with a sing-along chorus to boot. The summery tune packs a soulful punch and is delivered with trademark reverb drenched vocals and introspective wordplay. The 4 track EP ‘Is It Only Me’ is out on all digital outlets 16th September and showcases the multitudes of talents that the Suffolk based tunesmith possesses.
Previous tracks ‘All Along’ and ‘20th Century Fix’ have garnered in excess of 1M listens online and his sparse, avant-garde take on modern soul has been likened to James Blake, Jai Paul, Jamie Woon and Sampha by critics and tastemakers. Radio support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum, 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson and Radio X’s John Kennedy along with support slots live for Jess Glynne, John Newman and Jamie Cullum have all helped Mirror Signal establish himself as a true one to watch.
