Vajra have been collecting accolades and spreading their music via live performance for some time, so it’s no surprise that their latest track, “The Mirror” is a strong, mature song with the grandness of a band confident in their sound. Known for bringing Eastern Indian themes into their metal sound, this trio is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Annamaria Pinna, whose love for exploring the world around her brings a strong sense of depth to the songwriting.
“The Mirror” plays with range, dipping into softness for the bridge before the pace is once more skyrocketed. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the song is the fact that the energy is never lost. The visuals complement this by playing with colours and light and contrasting bright scenes of the band playing with cagey scenes shot in black and white. There is artistic unity to the single, and Vajra’s electric performance ties everything together.
