Code Orange Take A Look In The “Mirror” On Tender New Track

Code Orange have once again flipped things on their head with their new track, “Mirror“. Never a band to stick to one script, their recent output has been even more surprising than anything that has come before. From the dissonant heaviness of 2014’s I Am King through to the industrial grit of 2020’s Underneath, no stone is left unturned. Bending and breaking the hardcore mould time and time again, their upcoming new album The Above, set for release on September 29, feels like a true culmination of a journey into the unknown. From the spiralling Billy Corgan-featuring “Take Shape” to the full-blown assault of “Grooming My Replacement“, there is a lot to take in. And with “Mirror“, that tapestry only gets more detailed.

The track feels as disconnected from what people may expect from Code Orange as you can get, but at the same time makes total sense. Probably the closest that the band have got to replicating their one-off side project Adventures, it ebbs and flows like leaves in the breeze. Soft plucks of guitar, sweet strings and Reba Meyer’s stunningly affecting vocal all join together to create something that blooms and blossoms more with every passing second. It’s pretty, thoughtful and dreamy in all the right ways and another stunning curveball from a band with plenty left in their arsenal.

Reba had this to say about the song and what it represents for her creatively:

“This song has a special place in my heart. To me, it’s the climax of this style of my writing in this band thus far. Take a look in the mirror, are you bored?”

And vocalist Jami Morgan built upon this:

“Mirror is NOWHERE2RUN’s first foray into full music video production from conception all the way to the final edit. It’s fitting that we took on a song that is dynamically disparate from anything Code Orange has ever done. A little softer, a little more lush, and led by a powerful performance from Reba. It’s another important piece of the puzzle that is The Above.”
