Luke Reed :: "At The Harbor"

Luke Reed, an artist with the scant outline of a digital footprint, makes a tidy slice of fuzzy pop on "At The Harbor." In the spirit of Long Walks On The Beach, Reed drowns surf-guitar riffs under some deep-end reverb, adding a fuzzy, sing-song melody to sail over the top of the arrangement. It all takes place in less than two minutes, an odd antecedent to Reed's most gripping lyric, "I've been waiting for a long time," a song about summer sand castles and girding yourself against old heartbreaks in the face of new loves. It is a bit fleeting as Reed shambles, "I want to stay like this forever," knowing, in all probability, he can't.
