The first single from our upcoming new album, due in Summer 2018.

The fifteen months since you last heard from The Crystal Furs on our debut album have been a rollercoaster. We were thrilled and humbled by the great response to the album, and then we were shaken up by some changes. It's taken some time to find our footing again, but now the newly reborn Crystal Furs are stepping out of our cave to bring you more catchy-as-hell indie pop music, starting with this song, "In The Mirror."


Where you see pretenders
I see the people just like me
Where I see contenders
You see wannabes with fantasies
All the huddled masses in your city state
But your stone walls just seal your fate
In the mirror
Just look in the mirror

Where you see our failures
I see opportunities
You see your successes
I see through your insecurities
All the little cuts that just eat away
Until the real you sees the light of day
In the mirror
Just look in the mirror

Second chances for everyone else but you
Your pride just gets in the way
Karma's a bitch, they say

The current is rushing
And the tide is coming in
The jaws are so crushing
See the dorsal fins come for you again
All the little fishes that were in your way
So now what do you have to say
To the mirror
Just look in the mirror
