Radio Days are a powerpop trio hailing from Milan, Italy who have just released a video for new single 'What Is Life?,' taken off their upcoming full-length 'Rave On!'.
Rave On! (coming June 11th via the Sounds Rad imprint) is the band's fourth LP and features 10 power-pop gems that translate to music the many souls of the band. Taking the Paul Collins’ Beat and The Knack experience as a starting point, the songs of the album take a metaphoric trip from the scratching 70’s riffs (‘I Got A Love’) back to the beatlesque vibes (‘Between the lines’), moving across the British pub-rock of the Costello legacy (‘Till the end of the night’) and through the 90’s power-pop of Teenage Fanclub and Weezer (‘Walk alone’ and ‘No one to blame’). It is a tribute to rock ’n’ roll, an exciting journey on the Buddy Holly rollercoaster and the title is homage to the 50’s minstrel. It travels at high speed surfing the waves of the jingle jangle British invasion and lend on the 70’s punk-rock territory (‘Lose Control’). They also utilise the talent of a bunch of great international guests on the power-pop hymn ‘What is Life?’; namely Paul Collins, Kurt Baker, The Yum Yums and The Psychotic Youth.
