The Mirror – Ask Me How I Am
10th November 2000
Record Review

This Belfast bred, Glasgow based three piece intrigued and unsettled with their 1998 debut album Songs For Polarbears. With its circling harmonies, slow burning guitar and Gary Lightbody’s breathy insinuating delivery this is a tantalisingly brief (2.5 minute) taster for their second album…It’s about a character who is ‘out of their mind’ and ‘may not last a day’. Scary but very good. 4/5
