Mirrorball has today released their new video for the track titled ‘Take A Shot’. The video evokes subtle styles from the likes of Federico Fellini or ’70s era Martin Scorsese with a penchant for a slight noir in the filming style itself, it lends to a visual atmosphere that is the lush and spaciousness found in the music.

I hate to use the term shoegaze, gaze, or anything like that as much as I like the music classified as such, but I will say that, while the song clearly sets foot in that style while branching out into a sonically cinematic taste meant for anyone who has a quiet moment to take a listen. You won’t regret it.

About Mirrorball & ‘Take A Shot’

Mirrorball is an indie-pop duo based in Los Angeles. Composed of Alexandra Johnstone and Scott Watson, the pair channels dream pop blended with overcast psych pop and is quickly making a name for themselves on the indie scene.

“Take a Shot” finds inspiration in Johnstone’s father’s photographs, particularly those taken at the Santa Anita Racetrack in the 1970s. “I would think about the people in the photos and what their lives were like. I would wonder if they ever scored that big win and how things panned out for them.” Johnstone shares.

“It’s about taking your shot at life and betting on the next horse be it good or bad. It’s a little bit of a challenge too. Have you ever felt that someone wants to say something to you, but for some reason they can’t say it, and you want them to just take their shot? Let’s just leave the cards on the table, no matter how they lay.”

Mirrorball’s single “This Time” debuted on Dangerbird Records in 2019 and caught the attention of producer Chris Coady paving the way for their upcoming EP.
