"Faces Under The Mirror were the first band to play the Fest. Their strong basslines and melodic guitar work create an atmosphere that’s undeniable. Lyrics that are clearly emotional resonated on a universal level. I appreciated the young woman on keyboards that provided lovely backing vocals while playing in wedges for the whole set. Definitely a band I’d like to catch again and one we can easily see playing for larger crowds in the near future."
“Faces Under The Mirror was active more than ten years ago and then seemed to more or less disappear for going on a decade. Something like a cross between an industrial rock band and an EBM act, Faces was and is one of the better local bands coming from that realm of the Goth-Industrial spectrum.”
“Faces Under the Mirror’s gloomy brand of electro-cum-darkwave left a definite impression.”
“Faces Under the Mirror. This project, fronted by DJ FaceHaven, has an old school 4AD sound reminiscent of Clan of Xymox and X-Mal Deutschland, complete with a Cimmerian musical density and angsty lyrics- Despite technical problems early in the set, the show went on- the combination of retro-electronics and FaceHaven’s maudlin vocals made for a striking performance; tracks like ‘Depressing World’ and ‘Sin of the Flesh’ rumbled along in lushly textured darkwave style. The material was atmospheric and sorrowful, enmeshed in the dark pop spirit of bands like the Cure and the Banshees.”
“Sometimes melancholy, sometimes aggro, Faces Under the Mirror has many faces to their approach on music. Mostly Beat driven, angst infested, they can also be romantic and sorrowful. Let your ears open and your senses awaken to Faces Under The Mirror”
