East coast reggae band One Culture resurfaces with a little “Reflection” — literally. Out now on all digital outlets, the new single is an ambient-meets-progressive roots anthem on the power of retrospection. Produced and recorded in the home studio of frontman Kurt Jansohn, later to be mixed and mastered than none other than roots reggae heavyweight E.N Young, this uplifting track is just what you need if you’re currently singing the summer blues!
You “thought you’d never have it all”? One Culture asserts think again.
With a steady reggae beat and rhythm guitar strum, “Reflection” analyzes the transformation that happens when in a fairytale relationship — the one you swore would never happen to you. Or, maybe you need to work on building a better relationship with yourself. Turns out, you never know what life is going to bring your way and One Culture emphasizes it. Past relationships, quarrels and catastrophes could easily have you jaded, broken and downright bitter. But, the best things in life always come along when you least expect them; only with 20/20 hindsight can you see what fate had in store. Funny… perhaps the year 2020 and all its traumatic turns for worse has One Culture seeing so clearly now in 2021? Perhaps. Or, perhaps the band is just really appreciative for their current circumstances, romantic or otherwise.
Joining the four-piece on the track is saxophonist Roland Ockert, not to mention E.N Young lending a helping hand on keys and bubble organ to render that classic rootsy sound. As mentioned above, this satiating summertime reggae ballad is now available on all digital platforms. For more on the band or to tune in to the single yourself, follow the links below.
