“A reminder that a bit of sunkissed US pop-perfection is always good to go down a storm.” – NME
“ruminative, contemplative, pensive and deliberate too.” – Bullett
“Limerence, is a dreamy indie pop record that will suit the summer season perfectly.” – Filter Magazine
“shimmering, keyboard-kissed pop with a little post-punk drive in there too.” – Brooklyn Vegan
Just in time for long and dreamy summer days, LA’s The Reflections release their shimmering debut, the Limerence LP (Arc Recordings). The ten-track album melds swaggering guitars, infectious harmonies and chugging basslines for a robust indie rock soundscape.
Led by Darian Zahedi and Jon Safley (the current drummer in Bleached), The Reflections developed when the two began to email lyrics and voice memos back and forth while on the road with other projects. They later collaborated in the studio with famed engineer and producer, Kenny Woods (Jenny Lewis, Lykke Li, Vampire Weekend) at Brightstreet Recorders and the pair spent the fall of 2012 introducing their sound with singles like the dreamy, “Summer Days” and the post-punk tinged, “Disconnected,” as well as the “Disconnected (Gardens & Villa Remix)”.
Called “US pop-perfection” by NME, The Reflections take sun-flecked So-Cal melodies and run it through a Brit-pop filter that’s been lauded by Spinner, Brooklyn Vegan and Bullett, that’s downright undeniable. The Limerence LP is available digitally here and The Reflections will celebrate the release of the album at The Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles on June 9th.
