Eleanor Friedberger’s “She’s A Mirror” is a song about mysterious infatuation. In an interview with Rookie Mag, where the song premiered, she said, “it’s about obsession and it’s about seduction and I like how it’s very vague in terms of whose perspective is being told, where it is coming from. At the end I kind of give it up and say ’She’s me or a mirror, I don’t know.’” You can hear the pointed fixation in her voice throughout the song, but it’s a lot more exuberant than most songs about all-consuming want.
