Never ones to let the party end, The Gulps are right back with new single ‘Mirror Mirror’ just a couple of months after putting out the indie-disco-smash banger ‘Candy’. Anyone lucky enough to have caught them on tour in 2022 supporting Carl Barat, Ash or Cast will recognise the record as the absolute apex of their ferocious live show, as well as being a phenomenally unforgettable tune, ‘Mirror Mirror’ solidly capturing the mercurial energy the Camden five-piece deliver on stage.
Directly inspired by Jack Kerouac’s crazed sojourn across the USA in literary masterwork ‘On The Road’, The Gulps use the track to peer into a looking glass and discover all the many good, bad and ugly facets of the human experience glaring back at them, whilst sonically sounding like an early lost Strokes single with added Mick Jagger coos à la Sympathy For The Devil.
