Radio Days is an indie pop band from The Netherlands. After gaining global attention with their debut EP last year from music blogs like Kings of A&R (New York) and Indie-Music.Com (Seattle), supporting Ilse DeLange and a song featured in the new Showtime's TV series "The Affair", Radio Days has returned with their follow up EP.
Their second EP, called B.O.O.M.B.O.X is an ode to their hometown Markelo. A small village in a rural area in the east of the Netherlands. On weekdays the town is quiet and peaceful, but when the weekend arrives the town doubles in size as thousands of party seeking tourists from all over head to the tiny village to enjoy the massive clubs which the town is famous for.
Needless the say, this is a weird place to grow up in. For B.O.O.M.B.O.X the four boys from Radio Days wrote songs about growing up in the Las Vegas of the Netherlands. Eager to find out what their indie-dance and pop songs would sound like when trying to stay close to the vibe of the small village, they retreated to an old milk barn, turned into a studio and recorded B.O.O.M.B.O.X.
With musical influences from dance artists like Disclosure, Calvin Harris, Clean Bandit and indie-rock artists like Arcade Fire, Imagine Dragons and Bastille, the result is a EP filled with feel good synths, falsetto vocals, electo beats and larger then life guitar riffs.
For the artwork Radio Days teamed up with London based illustrator and animator Liam Brazier. Liam, whose latest work included the highly successful animation campaign for Queens of the Stone Age's latest album “Like Clockwork”, specializes in an illustration style known as polygon art
