Mirrorball 03:40
It was an 80's disco. (I know - not cool - but we both paid to be here.) Mmm, desperate fools.
It might have been meaningful, but I just wouldn't know...


Mirrorball is a co-release between Skep Wax and Shelflife Records. Available on limited edition 7” vinyl and digitally.

North American customers - please buy your 7" vinyl from Shelflife: it will be a lot cheaper for you! Shelflife is also the best bet for digital in North America.

UK and Rest of World customers - the Skep Wax 7" vinyl is available from good record shops. We do not have physical copies to sell via Bandcamp.

Mirrorball takes two lonely single people, and takes them for a night out in an 80s disco. Surrounded by divorcees and middle-aged drunks, will they be too shy to talk, or will they find some love action? Is this going to be heaven or hell?

This is definitely the most positive and the most romantic duet The Catenary Wires have ever released. With delicate – and not so delicate – musical tributes to the 80s, Mirrorball starts off sceptical, but ends up falling in love with the music of a decade that was pure, unsubtle, tasteless and synthetic. The 80s disco turns out to be heavenly!

The Catenary Wires write songs for grown-up indie kids. They don’t pretend to be 23 any more, but they do remember what it felt like. The song is a combination of joy and regret, innocence and experience.

Rob and Amelia (ex Talulah Gosh, Heavenly) started The Catenary Wires as a duo, but they’re a full band now - and this record really feels the benefit of inspired contributions from Fay Hallam (keyboard), Ian Button (drums) and Andy Lewis (bass).

MIRRORBALL is the first single from upcoming album Birling Gap.
