Music Genre: Pop Rock

Release date: January 10, 2023

Through the Looking Glass‘ is filled with those lovely nostalgic elements that will enchant 70’s music fans. The benefit of music that shares influences of past decades of music is that it allows the listener to experience that nostalgia while still being in touch with the present. The music is well written, catchy and will have you tapping your feet to the beat of each track. ‘Through the Looking Glass’ has a very broad appeal as it captures elements of rock, pop and alternative music along with some experimental sounds.

It’s a fun song to pick up your spirits.
