Premiere

Microwave – “Mirrors” Video

Microwave are releasing their third album, Death Is A Warm Blanket, at the end of this week. The Atlanta Band To Watch announced the album last month with two new songs, “DIAWB” and “Carry,” and followed them up with “Float To The Top,’ and today they’re sharing one final single, “Mirrors,” a heavy and knotted one that shows off the band’s new more hardcore sound.

It finds Nathan Hardy battling against an urge for self-destruction in the face of contentment: “I’m coming back to the state/ To a constant state of crisis,” he sings. “Because what do you do once you’re safe and you find that everything you wanted is everything you hate?”

The song’s music video intercuts live footage with an aimless drive in a search for answers that ends in a doppelgänger face-off. Watch and listen below.
