Los Angeles and Toronto-based due Vanity Mirror has released their debut full-length album, entitled PUFF, both digitally and on vinyl via We Are Busy Bodies. The dreamy lo-fi bedroom pop band has paired their album release with an accompanying music video for their song “Somehow You Know,” which is the third single off PUFF.
The album was written, recorded, performed, produced and even mixed by bandmember Brent Randall. The result is an album that starts where their other project, Electric Looking Glass, leaves off. It is a nostalgic collection of songs pieced together in makeshift spaces while traveling between LA, Montreal, Detroit and Toronto. Taping old pianos in public libraries and abandoned houses and tracking vocals in vintage shop basements, Randall sent the tracks to Toomey who recorded drums and percussion in his Los Angeles basement using a handheld field recorder.
Reflecting on “Somehow You Know,” Randall stated the following:
“’Somehow You Know’ is a somewhat of a lullaby. It wasn’t an immediate choice for a single but one of our favorites and a track that a lot of close friends had highlighted as one of their favorites. I think it has an immediacy in its simplicity. I think this video captures that and we’re so excited to share it.”
