Kordan is a Brooklyn-based trio who originally met in Puerto Rico early last decade. Once they all found themselves in Brooklyn at the same time, they decided to make music together. So far that’s led to their EP Fantasy Nation and a trip opening for Cut Copy on a North American tour a couple years back. The Longing is their first LP, and “Mirror” is the dramatic, resonant first single. The lyrics are pretty simple — “And you feel, feel, feel what I want to feel / I say, say, say what you want to say” — but eerily fatalistic. Mangia Films directed this equally moody clip. Press materials say the video was shot, “… on a 16mm Bolex camera, with all layering effects filmed directly over the performance footage.” Analog:
The band recently did this remix for BTW the Delta Mirror:
