The cover to Deeper Upper's 'Mirrors'

Deeper Upper reflects the ’80s with latest release, ‘Mirrors’

Deeper Upper received a lot of attention following the release of their second EP, ‘Ceremony‘.

Songs like ‘Unity‘ and ‘CPR‘ became instant favourites amongst indie fans, and I was sure they would go far with this sound; a notion proven right by sell-out shows, and their EuroMusic award win.

Since ‘Ceremony’, the Vilnius-based group decided to change that signature “indie” sound , and ‘Mirrors‘ is the result.

The foursome have never been afraid of using synths and electronic drums, but the first single from ‘Mirrors’, ‘No Regrets’, was a track so far removed from previous work, that it didn’t click with me.

However, that changed after the release of ‘Mirrors’. Hearing ‘No Regrets’ in context with the other tracks transformed it into something that improves with each listen. The song, and the rest of the album, is heavily influenced by 1980s synthpop – a completely different direction in sound for the band, yet a good one. However, it will take still take some time for me to adjust.

Despite the heavy synthpop influences, Deeper Upper have far from lost that original ‘dark’ touch that runs throughout their discography. That melancholic edge is what first drew me to them, and having mastered it so well, it still works irrespective of the musical avenue they choose to explore.

Overall, ‘Mirrors’ is a good album that raises the question: is Deeper Upper’s synthpop sound a definitive one, or will they surprise us once more in the future? Either way, let’s just hope that it won’t take them SIX years for a full album again.
