THOMAS DAVID – VOICE
FELIX – THE DRUMS
JOSEPH – GUITARS
PHILIP – BASS GUITAR
MATTHEW – KEYBOARD & VOX

NME – ‘[Father Sculptor] mix subtle undertones of religious fervour with darker takes on Marr’s intricate, chiming webs of sound.’

THE GUARDIAN – ‘A dark patch of middle ground between the Cult and the Smiths with goth-lite miserablism. Shockingly traditional, and startlingly 1984’

HOOTING & HOWLING – ‘Have you ever heard a song that just totally exceeds the confinement of four walls? It breaks down every barrier – drink, drugs, indifference – and completely immerses your senses. This is Dysmirror.’

JOURNAL ONLINE – ‘Misery hasn’t sounded this good in years’

COMING OF AGE – ‘Always beautiful, always melancholic, always intelligent, always melodic’

INCENDIARY MAG – ‘Dysmirror is an unholy screech of thumping, wide sweeping chords and declamatory verse. I suspect they listen to classical music of the romantic variety a lot; their chord changes have this sweep that sort of points to too much Brahms or Brueckner.’

THE FLY – ‘The heirs to The Smiths’ miserable throne’
