New multi-venue music event MIRRORS will debut in the heart of Hackney on Saturday 31st October 2015. Taking place across three stunning locations less than 10 mins walk apart - St John at Hackney Church, Hackney Round Chapel and Oslo Hackney - MIRRORS will showcase the very best in forward-thinking live music with performances from Rhye, Nadine Shah, The Thurston Moore Band, The Wytches, Aquilo, Pixx, Oceaán, Alex Bury, Dream Wife, Declan McKenna, Cameron A G, Duck House and more.
A conscientious approach to programming that puts a focus on audience experience brings the likes of enigmatic Rhye for a rare UK performance to headline St John at Hackney Church. Since the release of critically acclaimed debut album 'Woman' in 2013, Rhye have achieved unprecedented success with a spellbinding sound that pairs a tender production style with the soaring, androgynous vocals of Mike Milosh, making for a powerful performance.
Alongside Rhye, Nadine Shah will also feature in the spectacular eighteenth century venue. Coming straight off the release of sophomore album 'Fast Food', the outspoken singer, songwriter and musician will bring her sultry sound and hypnotic stage presence to the resonant arena. Ambient electro-pop duo Aquilo whose music reflects the expansive landscapes of their homelands in the Lake District, will also take to the stage.
The beautiful surrounds of Grade II listed Hackney Round Chapel will see a headline set from The Thurston Moore Band, a supergroup made up of Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore and drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe and guitarist James Sedwards. A kaleidoscopic stage performance is promised from rising doom rock three-piece The Wytches, signed to iconic taste-maker label Heavenly Recordings.
At the old Hackney station, Oslo will be hosting a programme with some of the most innovative artist to enter the scene headlined by Oceaán, with further sets from Pixx who has recently been signed by 4ad, instrumentalist, singer and composer Alex Burey, Declan McKenna - winner of Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition, Dream Wife, Cameron A G, Duck House, with many more still to be announced.
General tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 14th August on Alt Tickets.
