Examining how challenging situations can powerfully influence the way people perceive each other and their relationships is a influential contemplation that many experience in their lives. New York City-based hard rock-metal band, Vajra, which is guided by their captivating lead singer, Annamaria Pinna, uniquely infuses their hypnotic insight into the subject of how people’s attitudes influence their connections. On their hauntingly dark and melodic new single, ‘The Mirrors,’ which is set to be included on their upcoming EP, ‘Irkalla,’ the musicians question their assumptions about how other people view them, especially when they hold similar views.
‘The Mirrors’ is a stunningly progressive alternative ballad that creatively interweaves Eastern Indian themes into its hard rock vocals and instrumentals, which dynamically creates a foreboding and mysterious style of gypsy metal. The entrancing and captivating sounds of Pinna’s voice are especially striking, particularly when its accentuated by her fellow musicians’ ominous guitar riffs and drum strikes.
The vocalist stunningly proves that a woman can be just as intense in the rock and metal genres when she fiercely sings about being caught in the power of the person she loves. The song intriguingly points out a relatable problem that many couples face, in that they hate to truly look at, and accept each other, as they see their own faults in the other person.
Pondering how difficult situations can powerfully influence the way people perceive each other and their relationships is a compelling contemplation that many experience in their lives. Guided by the riveting and unique vocals of Pinna, who grippingly proves that she can rival many of her male counterparts in the metal and rock genres, Vajra uniquely infuses their hypnotic insight into the subject of how people’s attitudes influence their relationships. The musicians deeply contemplate their assumptions about how other people view them, especially when they hold similar views, on the hauntingly dark and melodic ‘The Mirrors,’ which will definitely help garner the attention they deserve in the progressive and alternative worlds.
