The Brooklyn band present the new video for their single on RVNG Intl, featuring Rumi Missabu of The Cockettes
Set to release their new album entitled 'Interiors' on RVNG Intl (the label who brought you Blondes, Hype Williams and CFCF), New York-based band Mirror Mirror premiere their new 'Interiors' video on Dazed featuring Rumi Missabu, one of the last surviving members of the 60s psychedelic San Francisco group, The Cockettes. Appearing in a black column dress designed by Lauren Devine, Missabu in the black & white video combines influences from traditional Butoh dance, film noir and THX 1138 to eerie effects in a modern, minimal background.
...your secret talent?
Fabricating ambiguous answers to interview questions...
...your worst vice?
I'm addicted to the beach. But I don't want any help.
…the story behind your name?
We wanted a name that could work equally well for a band, perfume, car, or multinational corporation (in case we ever wanted to expand). Mirror Mirror was the only name that was not a swear in any language.
...your favourite sound?
There's a mockingbird in the neighborhood who can imitate all the sounds of a car alarm. I've been trying to sample him, but he's hard to track down.
...your worst fashion secret?
Blacklight nail polish. And back to the beach: salt water is the best hair product.
...your favourite website?
DIS magazine, the most informative online magazine currently in existence: www.dismagazine.com
... good for breakfast?
I like to drink my breakfast through a straw, so usually a smoothie or juice--orange, grapefruit, ginger is very energizing. Maybe a spirulina tablet if I'm hungry.
...the best thing about where you're from?
Gay divorce is now legal in New York City.
...at the top of your shit list?
I don't do shit lists. I think negative people have a talent for doing themselves in.
...are you listening to now?
Pictureplane, "Thee Physical". I love the song titles: "Post Physical", "Real is a Feeling"...
How would you describe your work?
Therapeutic. For me and hopefully for other people as well.
'Interiors' is the first single off of Mirror Mirror’s eponymous new album, available August 16 on RVNG Intl
