REVIEW | Mid Reflection – Outcast

Idea-v8-print


At a glance, a mixture of punk, rap and ska seems a little curious, to say the least, but London four-piece Mid Reflection manage to pull it off, as indicated by their upcoming Outcast EP.

The title number recounts the experience and lasting effects of bullying, conveyed well by vocalist Matthew Bishop. Very strong writing at play here, despite not being the most engaging track from a musical standpoint.

Up next, the assertive Illusions provides a good hook with the background ensemble, plus the guitars stick out and the closing section is just rocking. Matthew is back front and centre in the really catchy Legalise It, as he blares out verses at a superb breakneck speed, and to wind up, we’ve got the hard-hitting Foes that is oozing with animosity.
