Gold Panda and Shaw recorded On Reflection in Shaw’s studio in Kent, England. Gold Panda said in a press release about the album, “It’s the most immediate and natural record I’ve ever made.” He also said:
We didn’t make this for a label or something. Initially, it was just us mucking around. There was no plan to make an album. Originally I thought we were going to make a track here and there and stick them out on vinyl. But then, we had an album that sounded quite good and it was like “well if we have an album’s worth of stuff, maybe we should just release it.” It became a thing, I suppose.
