Sydney-based alternative-rock trio RADICALS have today revealed their thundering new single falling faster slowly – produced by Daniel Antix at Def Wolf Studios (Pist Idiots, SCABZ, Clay J Gladstone).
Igniting with colossal drums and commanding guitars, falling faster slowly explores the frontiers of grunge and alternative music in a stimulating manner. Lead vocalist Brandon Wade pilots the melody above vigorous drum and bass, before lurching into a captivating chorus. Taking cues from Royal Blood and The Black Keys, the vivacious song’s lyrics dive into themes of mind alteration.
“The song is based around the feeling/experience of taking drugs,” commends Brandon. “We wrote the song while on drugs and thought it would be the perfect time to write and encapsulate what and how we were feeling. It was a wild experience and we’re stoked the song turned out the way it did.”
Complimenting the single is a psychoactive accompanying video – filmed, directed and edited by Nelson Faulds from Level 48 Visuals. Shot at Huxley’s in Caringbah, the video alters between live performance footage and feverish animations, using quick cut editing and psychedelic effects to encapsulate the lyrical themes of the track.
