The fourth album from Young the Giant, Mirror Master is a layered meditation on identity in modern life, an emotionally charged look at the dangers of illusion and possibilities of freedom. "Within one single day, we're all so many different people," says Gadhia, lead vocalist for the L.A.-based band. "Especially with the use of social media, we're not just living in the now -- we're living on several different timelines simultaneously. At a time when everyone wants to put each other in a box -- culturally, socially, musically -- we wanted to show that there are a multitude of reflections inside everything. We don't have to be a certain thing; we can contradict ourselves and show all these different sides of who we are."
Proving their instinctive ingenuity, Young the Giant ultimately created a genre-defying and dynamic album, one that transforms the complexity of its themes into music with a mesmerizing quality. Right from the opening track "Superposition," Mirror Master proves untethered to the mundane, its ethereal textures merging with lyrics that capture the cosmic destiny of a life-altering romance (e.g., "In any universe you are my dark star"). Then, on "Simplify," Young the Giant switch gears to offer up an anthem built on bold and buzzing guitar riffs. "The idea of 'Simplify' is that while there's so much to deal with in this world, so much sensory overload at every moment, being able to connect with someone you love at the end of day can make everything so simple," says Gadhia.
