Radio Psychosis bring back the intense joy of thinking while listening to music. This might be rare if you have taken to the mainstream Spotify playlists. However, drawing inspiration from the 80s post-punk scene might be a collider of many important intersections. Well, one of them was the Television. This is their debut, and it shows how a hit is made.
A simple harmony tends to stick to the back of your head like a jingle. The difference being, the former plated with some subversive, interesting lyrics can do a lot of change. Going away from the noise of punk was important in the post punk scene. You can hear The Cure influences on this particular single, where Radio Psychosis have the synths and live instruments coalesce to create something brilliant. Between verses, you’ll hear well curated pockets of harmonics, between guitars and synths. This was the hallmark of groups and bands that earned the tempo and feel of the song.
Another thing you’ll notice is the steady beat, almost electronic. However, between the chorus and verse parts-there are interesting fills to hold it together. When the guitar riff begins and the synth flows in, you feel euphoria.
The 2007 movie Control would be great with this song. Centred around that mass hysteria, Radio Psychosis has put their best foot forward with their debut. You can listen to the single and judge for yourself, and follow them for more singles definitely to come!
