Karen Harding has given words the collective female angst that exists related to how they persieve themselves in Devil In The Mirror. It seems bold of us to assume that the mirror lies to us about our thoughts and our bodies. But Karen asks us to lean into that empowering voice confidently. The track is explosive, it starts and ends in a flash leaving you with a heep of your own thoughts and emotions.
The song springs into existence with a pulsing bass and drums section. Karen’s vocals vibrantly paint the canvas with its techno beat structure that is both futuristic and retro at the same time. The song is all this but it is also a slow burn as she poetically puts into perspective the issues most humans face. She does this as she gives us strength. “Don’t want to live in this illusion, I wanna be true to myself. I’ll break a mirror, I’ll start a revolution.” It’s lyrics like these that beads into our self confidence.
A beautiful thing about female leads in films is that, it deals with female relationships at various levels.

Firefly Lane is all of this and Karen’s Devil In The Mirror could slip right into their playlist and it would be a perfect fit!
