Reservations is a rock band based out of Austin, Texas. Beginning as a collaboration between songwriter Jana Horn and guitarist Paul Price (who also leads the band Good Field), Jason Baczynski eventually joined on drums after the band’s home-recorded debut EP. Now, with a fuller sound (achieved live with an expanded lineup) and a spectacular full length under their belt, Reservations is making their way around on tour and starting to get some much-deserved attention. Horn’s soft, dreamy vocal style pairs perfectly with the band’s fragile balance of reserved grooves and spaced-out guitars, drawing frequent comparisons to Mazzy Star. The band stopped by Serious Business in DUMBO to play some songs and chat with Maia about the ideas behind their new record.
