Dead Radio - Rachel

Dead Radio - Rachel
Dead Radio's music is largely influenced by the shoegazing and psychedelic rock movement; and has drawn regular comparisons to the likes of The Verve, The Velvet Underground, Telescopes, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Dead Meadow.

Formed in 2012, Dead Radio made their radio debut courtesy of US radio St Louis’ KDXH, and featured prominently on rotation on stations across the USA, Europe and Scandinavia.

In December 2012, Crystal Moth was the first official release. The EP featured four tracks, with the debut single 'Tokeloshe' receiving extensive airplay on independent radio both locally and overseas. The track also reached as high as #3 on Australia’s Triple J Unearthed Chart – where it remained in the top 10 for over a month.

This success was backed up with following single 'Scotch' reaching #1 on the same chart in December 2012, where it remained for two weeks.

The EP also reached #3 on Amrap's independent radio charts.

Following the local release, Dead Radio continued to release songs internationally, largely by way of compilations. These included:
Whatispsych - Australia 2012
The Active Listener Psychedelic Community - New Zealand 2012
When The Sun Hits - USA 2013
Dead City Radio - South Africa 2013

About this track...

'Rachel' opens with a drawn-out haunting drone played in Arabic scale, before a transition to a straight shooting jangle-pop classic, in a style that has been compared to a sound harking back to early years of The Dandy Warhols and The Black Angels.
