Biography

Cruel Reflections was started in a UCLA dorm room by Julio Cesar Francisco Garcia-Solares early-2017. Longtime friend Satchel Solis joined the band shortly after, who then recruited Christian Mayorga. They quickly hit the studio to record their freshman album “One Year,” which was released on January 8th, 2018 on all music platforms. Cassette tapes were also made and distributed via Wiener Records. The band brings back sounds from late-70’s and early-80’s post-punk with a splash of new wave.

“One Year” has received positive feedback worldwide since it’s release. It has received a review from White Light / White Noise in Italy, featured on mixtapes in Germany, received radio play on Attitude FM in France, and in Los Angeles, featured on 95.5 KLOS’s Frank, Heidi, and Frosty’ “Stay or Go” and voted by listeners to “Stay.” The band was also nominated for “Best LA emerging artist” on Deli LA Magazine.
