Dan Andriano and Brendan Kelly went on a European vacation together and to celebrate the occasion, they dropped this 7” to which each of them contributed one new song. Just like their solo outings are different from their main projects, these two songs are equally different from one another.

Dan Andriano gets to start the dance with “Radiator” and strips it all the way down to just two acoustic guitars, a half-hidden tambourine and - of course - vocals. It’s a pretty solid tune with some seriously honest lyrics. Brendan Kelly on the other hand has never been the quiet type. So it should come as no surprise that he does the complete opposite of Andriano and ends up with what can be best descrbed as a ragtime punkrock kinda song? Regardless, it’s good.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
