Mirrorkicks – Lego

I’m not a massive fan of Mirrorkicks, but we’ve got to agree that this video is pretty immense. It is apparently entirely homemade and took 6 months, 10,000 photographs and over 100 lego men to make it – definately a far cry from the usual “performance” videos we see released by lazy bands. The song is perfectly fun spiky pop-rock stuff, but nothing amazing. The press release says:

The Mirrorkicks are pure home-grown musical talent from South London. Band members, Gerard De Waal and Edwin Pereira, met with brothers, Ingmar and Anil Kamalagharan, whilst at secondary school in Streatham. Following a period of musical experimentation, which saw Anil performing and recording with Imogen Heap and Ingmar, whilst Edwin and Gerard supported Razorlight at their 2006 Album launch, the boys’ passion for indie/rock couldn’t be ignored and they formally cemented their relationship with the formation of Mirrorkicks in late 2008.

Fantastic video! And love the track too!
Saw them live a few weeks back and they were incredible, better than imagined, such a tight band- can’t wait to hear more from them.
I hope they go on to do really well-they deserve it.

I just found out about this from looking at some Swedish band’s lego video on London Paper and then someone said about this vid – wanted to see what people were saying about it. It’s wicked!
All the little men dancing!
Nice band. I like this song – but it’s not as good as there other songs. The songs I’m listening to on their myspace now are really good… good videos on there too – I agree though – they should def do more animated ones!

I’m a big fan of Mirrorkicks. I completely disagree about the track, I love this song (and the video as well!). They’re certainly not lazy, they put so much effort into making great music and interesting videos. Got tickets for their single launch in September and I can’t wait!
