Fusing the leather-clad swagger of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the bluesy 4/4 stomp of the Black Keys and the simmering electronic rumblings of early Kasabian, 75 Trips finds Reflekter in brooding, empowering form. 75 Trips arrives hot on the heels of their blistering previous single Alright, a track hailed by Trash Magazine as “channeling the early swaggering sounds that made Oasis and Kasabian household names” and earning itself positions as “Best of The Week” on Apple Music (Italy, Portugal and Turkey) and “Tune of The Day” on The Indie Masterplan, the track is already making waves.
One of Nottingham’s hottest new prospects right now, Reflekter formed in May 2018 and have already been compared to Rock’n’Roll greats the likes Oasis, Echo and the Bunnymen and Kasabian. A singer and songwriter on the circuit already, frontman James Gooch may already be familiar to some for his work with BBC Introducing praised act: Same Streets. Parking the project after meeting his brothers in arms at a Fontaines DC gig in Nottingham, Reflekter were born that day. Wasting little time, the band quickly began laying down tracks together at a local recording studio. These early demos soon found themselves in the lap of Jake Bugg manager Jason Hart who instantly recognised their potential. Within a year of their formation the band released their first single Caught in a Storm, a track which organically clocked up over 20,000 streams in a week and had BBC Introducing’s Dean Jackson placing on the coveted “ones to watch list 2019”.
