LITTLE MAN RECORDS
September 30, 2013
Missouri trio Radkey is electric and raw, and ignites a fire for contemporary music lovers. With a combination of gritty guitars and booming vocals, the band embodies everything we love about rock and roll and their no frills approach is certain to stick to your brain. Here at HIP Video Promo we are very pleased to introduce the digitally delightful new video “Romance Dawn.”
The band is a punk rock trio from St. Joseph, Missouri made up of three teenage brothers—Dee, Isaiah, and Solomon. Inspired by the music they grew up listening to such as the Misfits, Ramones, The Who, and Death, the self taught trio decided to form a band. They had the pleasure of opening for Fishbone, Local H and Supersuckers and performed at the 2012 Afro-punk Festival in Brooklyn, New York as well as playing an official 2013 SXSW showcase.
Their EP Cat & Mouse introduced the band to a large fan following, and their newest album Devil Fruit sees the band sticking with what works, but honing their craft to be even more impressive. They’ve scored glowing reviews everywhere from SPIN.com to Brooklyn Vegan and had their new video “Romance Dawn” on NME. NME isn’t the only Brits that are big fans of the band. They’re heading over to the UK in October with stops in London, Manchester, Leeds, and they even landed a coveted spot performing on Later with Jools Holland!
Radkey’s newest video “Romance Dawn” is sure to melt faces. Presenting itself as a live-animation hybrid, the clip is stylish, sharp and unique. Top notch CGI fill the screen and the vibrant colors masterfully move viewers through every note of the song, compliments of director Shaun Hamontree. The track is powerfully creative, as the song jumps between multiple feels and tempos, all while retaining the main refrain “Hey Hey Now” that will linger in your ears long after the completion of the video. “Romance Dawn” is extremely diverse and offers one heck of a thrill for fans of the new-age punk rock genre.
After returning from their dates in Europe the band will be embarking on an extensive US tour, sharing one leg with Black Joe Lewis and more dates with Red Fang and Cancer Bats. We would love to have you meet up with the band, so please be in touch!
