It’s time to get your hands on one of the most ambitious indie releases of 2007 – Dardanelles’ eagerly awaited debut album Mirror Mirror will be available in stores from 15 September! Featuring 11 tracks, Mirror Mirror is a panoramic soundscape of unexpected hooks, hypnotic grooves, soaring vocals and filmic noise, juggling shoe-gaze guitars, hip-hop drum programming, Detroit-tech piano, one man choirs, the visceral squeal of grunge, and Kubrickesque trance outs.

A statement of Dardanelles’ unique musical vision, Mirror Mirror was recorded over four weeks in Melbourne with respected producer Woody Annison (Children Collide, Red Riders). Unlike anything you’ll hear in 2007 Dardanelles show they know how to push their musical boundaries.

With the album’s first single ‘Footsteps’ already familiar to listeners of triple j and community radio nationally, Dardanelles are gearing up for the release of a new single and have also been busy perfecting their intense live show.

They’ll show just how far they’ve come when they support Glaswegian buzz band 1990s in late September across venues in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and play with Midnight Juggernauts next week at their Sydney shows.

Spreading their musical vision far and wide, Dardanelles will soon announce an extensive national album launch tour, and a string of international tour dates including a performance at Manchester’s premier music event, In The City!
