The Mirror Kissers
In their own words
Two teenage boys - Jake and Max - from Ross-on-Wye, who formed a band in January 2007.
We mix live guitars, bass and vocals with synthesised drum and sample sequencing.
Rather than starting electronically and progressing to a more 'natural/organic/wholegrain' or generally accepted, guitar-shaped band line-up, we started as a guitar band with no drummer.
But we plan to, and are beginning to progress into, a live electro-tech band, mixed with shouting and guitars.
As we have got older, our tastes for indie have been replaced by drum and bass, then electro-techno house, and the more energetic side of dubstep.
We might have, then, become producer/DJs, if it wasn't for us enjoying the aesthetic and live playing of a band, and resenting the idea of playing our own music to an audience using just a CD or laptop.
We are influenced by Boys Noize, D.I.M., M.I.A., Diplo, and more, but it is ever-changing, and usually listed on our MySpace.
The best comparison we would like to make for our sound would be to Does It Offend You, Yeah?
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
