Radio Days - Rave On!


This is proper Power Pop. Italian Trio (it should always be a trio), Radio Days return with their fourth album and it doesn't disappoint. Radio Days specialise in the type of Power Pop that fans of the genre love and there doesn't seem to to have been much around like this lately.

There used to be a mass of this type of stuff to choose from and the lack of it now makes the album seem even more special. The trio can be whatever you want Power Pop wise, 60s, the second wave in the late 70s and the 90s revival. They master it all.

I Got A Love and Lose Control great UK New Wave, Walk Alone is splendid Jangle Pop and Till The End Of The Night is great Merseybeat. All eras are covered with ease and expertise. What Is Live is spot on UK Beat. 

Rave On is probably the band's most diverse album yet. No One To Blame is wonderfully anthemic and When I'm With You is top notch Glam Rock with a bit of US turn of the 70s swagger. The stand out though is the magnificent Between The Lines.

Between The Lines is all melody. An almost easy listening verse with organ accompaniment which breaks in to a big catch all chorus. It is a laidback affair that shows a whole new side to Radio Days. Power Pop fans will love Rave On!, but any fan of Indie melodic guitar pop should come along for the ride. You won't be disappointed.

You can listen to and buy the album here.
