Album: Mirrors, Lights and Offerings (Skint)

Mirrors emerged in 2009, found themselves namechecked among 2010's rash of Bright New Hopes, and it's taken them a full year to release their debut.

The delay has been worthwhile. The sharp-suited Brighton synth quartet have delivered 10 glistening, pristine instalments of dignified electro-pop. Well, nine, and one perfectly serviceable cover. It's an album whose lineage can be traced back to Kraftwerk, which is odd when you consider it was recorded in a hippie commune in rural Sussex.
