New York’s rising star ROREY has released her long awaited debut EP, Apt 7d. Accompanying the release of her EP, is a music video for “Mirror,” the focus track from the EP. The release of this track follows her release of “Emotional Hangover.”
The song opens with a delicate guitar, setting a somber and contemplative tone. ROREY’s vocals enter softly, filled with vulnerability and emotion. The lyrics go into the struggle of finding one’s true self in a world filled with expectations and illusions. As the song progresses, the chorus emerges, engulfing the listener in a wave of synth and emotions.
A track of self-acceptance and coming to terms with one’s flaws and imperfections, “Mirror,” portrays a feeling of frustration and struggle in lines like “wasting my time tryna keep up the pace, always looking for someone to blame.” Reflecting on a common experience of trying to navigate life’s challenges, the track also portrays a sense of accountability and the consequences that come with negative behavior or mindset with lines like “I’m on my worst behavior. Catches up to you sooner or later.”
