Mirage – Smooth Talkers (Track Of The Day, 27th July)

How do you say ‘That’s djenty AF” in French?

Lyon based metalcore band Mirage have released a video for their track “Smooth Talkers”. “Smooth Talkers” is from the five-piece’s upcoming EP which is currently still in progress, but you can find it as well as their Sept 2016 release “Minefield” on Bandcamp.

In the meantime we can soak up the goodness of “Smooth Talkers” via video, wherein Mirage (David Paoli, Adrien Gonzales, Stéphane Gout, Guillaume Vo and Antoine Tribouillard) hit out at those who are all talk and no action.

“Division is your weakness
You will pay the price of your own

“Smooth Talkers” captures Mirage’s full spectrum from gentle and sweet rock (at the introduction) through to heavy djent bombardment and growls. Lyrically it’s also full spectrum; containing whispers of hope for change, through to ‘You’d better shut the fuck up!’.

The song acts as a desire to make a difference and awake the sleepers who need to take action instead of offering empty words.

I’m intrigued and keen to see more from Mirage. See what you think of “Smooth Talkers”.
