Track Review: Mirror // Sharl
Defiant, delectable and divine, singer-songwriter Sharl is one of those artists you can’t wait to listen to and once you have, you’ll never forget her. Hailing from Australia, Sharl previously signed to a UK indie record label but re-emerged in 2022 as an independent artist. Working on her own terms, Sharl has been recognised as a “prolific and unerring consistent talent…” by notable publication Clout. She has been featured on numerous independent blogs such as The Other Side Reviews, We Write About Music, Rising Artists Blog, PopFad, and Sinusoidal Music – to name just a few. Moreover, coverage on numerous playlists and radio stations expands her reach on an international level.
On the heels of her 2022 album, City Lights, Sharl releases an “…irresistible disco pop track – ‘Mirror’…” From the first chord, you can tell ‘Mirror’ will be the highlight song at clubs with everyone dancing about while singing along to the catchy lyrics. Retaining the old-school 80s disco vibe, particularly with the interspersed keyboards illuminating the synth-driven melody, ‘Mirror’ fills you with nostalgic joy. Yet, while a reminiscence of the bubblegum pink fuzziness of 80s disco is apparent, Sharl brings a fresh breath of 21st-century pop to the mix. Fresh but familiar, there is an edginess to the single.
Similar to her well-received single ‘Outside’ (featured on City Lights), Sharl proves she can get the party started with ‘Mirror’ but not as loud as P!nk’s insisting song ‘Get The Party Started’. Instead, Sharl thrills listeners, ensnares senses and sends souls soaring with elegant teasing in her softer pop tones.
Just as the melody can place a grin on your face, the significant theme makes you smile even more. Penned as a tribute to “…discovering an incredible, unexpected, soulmate-level connection”, ‘Mirror’ is as heart-warming as it is soothing. Sincere, sentimental and filled with groovy vibes, Sharl enchants listeners with elegant grace in ‘Mirror’.
