Banger of the Week - Radio Psychosis "Television"

Flicking through some of the great artists listed on our Indie Rock playlist, we came across this gem from Radio Psychosis.

Radio Psychosis, a collaboration between singer/songwriters Colin M Potter (Blindness & Light) and Mike Juvenile (KEEF) were formed during the COVID lockdown and have captured the energy of the '80s in their cracking debut track, "Television".

In the song, we take a tongue-in-cheek dig at the mindless television shows which have become popular in recent years (I'm looking at you, Love Island). Among other things, the lyrics explore modern society, technology, and the impact of these on human psychology, as well as the many contradictions and complexities of the modern world. The song also reflects on how technology can create a false sense of security and a culture of instant gratification, blurring the lines between the real and the virtual. It also encourages us to step back and reflect on the world around us, and to think critically about the choices we make in our lives.

The band have expertly blended 80s nostalgia with modern production, creating an anthemic sound that goes beyond the decade. Your senses will be swept back to the glory days of Factory Records when Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen, and The Cure were all huge artists, and these influences have clearly rubbed off on the band. With riffs and vocals reminiscent of early New Order, Radio Psychosis will definitely fill that void in your musical tastes. I'm looking forward to hearing what comes next!

Our rating: 9.3/10
