"Don't you think it's pointless having me around? I'm just being honest," sings Mack Winston in "Summer Days." This lyric is our introduction to the Los Angeles-based band, The Reflections.
Led by Mack Winston (Darian Zahedi) and Jon Safley (drummer in Bleached), The Reflections have only been a band since the beginning of 2012. And although this project is relatively new, they have kept their work fairly quiet until now.
"Summer Days," which we have here as a FILTER Premiere, is a song thats lackadaisical quality reminds one of what it feels like to live in L.A. at times. The Reflections have taken a different approach to summer and love with this song. For the song's persona, summer days are spent meandering around and examining what it means to be lonely.
"Do I wonder about you because you're no longer around?" Winston muses. We've all been there. And most of us have made it to the other side where solitude can also mean solace. These introspective lyrics only make us eager to hear more from this band.
The Reflections' debut album, Limerence, will be released early 2013. For now, you can listen to the FILTER Premiere of "Summer Days" below.
