One of the US’ finest rising stars, Pearl Charles, has today revealed her dreamy new song, ‘Imposter’, the third track to be taken from her stunning new album, Magic Mirror, out on 15th January 2021 via Kanine Records.
Drenched in horns and hazy slide-guitar, the track was written on a mushroom trip at a songwriting retreat on Nantucket Island; the lyrics reference The Grateful Dead (steal your face) and the classic idea of never looking in the mirror while you’re on psychedelics.

Speaking of the track Pearl said, “On the surface ‘Imposter’ sounds like a sun-soaked day, but there is a darkness that lurks beneath. An experience reminiscent of Ram Dass’ first trip in ‘Be Here Now’, ‘Imposter’ tells the story of someone wrestling with their larger cosmic identity beyond the human form and deals with the general idea of “Imposter Syndrome”, feeling like a fraud despite your qualifications and accomplishments, which many professional women struggle with.”
Magic Mirror is a looking glass of sorts. Like a modern day Alice in Wonderland. It follows the cartography of a girl, growing into a woman, as she moves through life from single-dom, to the expansive space of self-reflection, and the newly appreciated perspective of coming back together again and finding yourself, this time with someone new.
