You may have seen Mirror Kisses’ 2013 album, Heartbeats, in the photo of SAINT PEPSI at the top of our Band To Watch feature on that artist. SP’s fandom was understandable, because that album is the best encapsulation yet of singer/producer George Clanton’s glam-star-via-chillwave style. The new video for Heartbeats’ centerpiece, “Genius,” blends clips of two people painting a stark mural with footage of Clanton performing at a house show in DC, which gives you a glimpse of how intense and cathartic the guy’s performances are. Watch it and grab the song below.
Heartbeats is self-released and can be downloaded for free via Bandcamp.
