Mind Over Mirrors' Bellowing Sun" is out April 6, 2018 on Paradise of Bachelors.
His music as Mind Over Mirrors is mercurial and mystical, effervescent and contemplative. The evolution of his project from a one-man drone experiment to the full band experience it is now has spanned six records in seven years, culminating in last year’s expansive breakthrough, Undying Color.
On Bellowing Sun, Mind Over Mirrors creates a widescreen aura. Fennelly’s synths are met by Bean’s rising vocals and Mueller’s rattling drums. In composing Bellowing Sun, Fennelly focused on rhythm more than eve. hat tactic pays continual dividends, injecting blood into his oxygen-rich music. But the music-this current iteration of Mind Over Mirrors’ constantly evolving vision-is so powerful, so alive, that it carries a meaning all its own. – Will Schube, Noisey. An awe-inspiring opus of limitless revelry. The key ingredient that allows the novel to transcend, and for Mind Over Mirrors’ electroacoustic miasmas to aurally replicate, is the description of the natural world in a metaphysical vein. oscillate and breathe, melding in with the synapses of the listener and lulling them into a rapturous state.
The album was released by Paradise of Bachelors in 2018, and the work was premiered at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago on the day of the album's release.
The artist embarks on a self-imposed exile to change their intention. It’s a deliberate decision to vanish when the forces that used to feed your work don’t sustain it anymore, an embrace of sparsity that comes from going off the grid. The music that Jaime Fennelly makes as Mind Over Mirrors would fit that narrative well had Fennelly’s retreats into nature been one lone trip, but self-imposed exile has long been a part of his process.

But if there’s one wonderful Romeo of a dude who’s always out there fightin’ to make this thing work, it’s Mind Over Mirrors’ Chicago-based, harmonium/synth playing loverboy Jaime Fennelly, who has just announced that he’s monogamously hooked-up with (ironically) the Paradise of Bachelors label for the release of his sixth studio album.
Mind Over Mirrors, the electronic, harmonium-based project of musician Jaime Fennelly, performs at the Mill on Thursday. Haley Fohr, a new member of Mind Over Mirrors and last year’s Mission Creek artist-in-residence, will join Fennelly on stage for the show. There is a lot to take in when listening to a Mind Over Mirrors track - rolling minimalist synth lines, sparse percussion, guitar feedback. At the heart of each composition though, lies the steady drone of an Indian pedal harmonium, augmented through tape delays, oscillators and other various effects.
Mind Over Mirrors is the ever-evolving brainchild of Jaime Fennelly, and the new album from his project is called Undying Color. In short – the album is a monument of sonic wonder.
