Much more significant for everyone than the international Stansted airport or the Lakeside shopping centre, isn't it? And this is where Sound Mirrors are from, Chelmsford to be exact.
So let's give their latest song, "Planet Fall" a listen. It's the second track announcing the very next release of their first album ever, "Spacerocketsandsunshine", in early June.
After the first Hammond organ chords, you just know this psychedelic ballad will be enjoyable. Each other instrument, guitar, bass and drums builds to a dense and rich texture.
Rico is the lead vocalist, but most other members (4 out of 5) support him, building an extraordinary choir vibe that explodes near the end of the song, just as fireworks would. A brilliant and epic moment.
A happy song with smiling melodies, that could bring the shiny colours of summer even in the coldest northern winter. And if Essex has no concrete Sound Mirrors, the remnants of a dead-end technology and forerunners of radar built in the 1920's and 1930's, they at least have Sound Mirrors, which is, even more, fun and exotic!
