This would have been easy to put in the thanks but no thanks pile. Fizzy pop sparkles like a glossy saccharine advert, until….. a closer inspection. Super Mirage tread that fine line between being taken as another wanna-be act, or as a group with a perspective. Theatrical backgrounds inject the process of production, there is a danger of becoming more a floor show than a serious band, but in my mind they manage to stay on the right line. Perhaps it is the grit of Brooklyn that enables acts to negotiate the tight-rope (think Marla Mase  – A Brief Night Out- but don’t think of her out-put).

Super Mirage have the capability to play some well structured and creative material. As someone from the UK, it is interesting to hear influences of mainstream Brit-pap (sic) mixed with London New Wave echoed back from a US ear. I can envisage the band doing well, I can however also see them disappearing without a trace. I would dearly like to see them concentrating on the inventive, rather than the mainstream, as this is where they add value to the world of music.
