Reflekter shine bright like the molten sounds of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Black Keys, Oasis, Echo and the Bunnymen and Kasabian distilled; a fiery melting pot of energy, melody and psychedelia and undoubtedly one of Nottingham’s hottest new prospects right now. With a sound that swaggers, woozes and transfixes the listener, latest single ‘Alright’ pays tribute to the band’s heroes without ever slipping into the realms of nostalgia.
Reflekter formed in Nottingham in May 2018. Four lads in a bar, watching Fontaines DC at dot to dot festival in Nottingham. The lead singer and songwriter James had been on the circuit for 3 years, with a previous band called Same Streets, loved by BBC introducing decided that it was time to get the music recorded and put the band together from the ashes of same streets, and recruit the best musicians to bring it all to life. The local recording studio heard the demos who sent them to Jason Hart who manages Jake Bugg amongst others, who hired a crack studio team to produce and mix a complete album, recorded and mixed in two months.
With their first single ‘Caught in a Storm' organically clocking up over 20,000 streams in a week, it wasn’t long before BBC Introducing’s Dean Jackson was hot on their heels, placing them high on the coveted “ones to watch list 2019”. Now with a second track unleashed for public devouring, ‘Alright’ truly captures the essence of their fist pumping, riff-shredding rock’n’roll.
