The past year for Radstewart has been incredible, and since playing their first show not a year ago – they’ve seen their self recorded (on a physics department microphone) debut EP sell out, supported Sky Larkin on their UK tour, drawn packed crowds at Green Man, SWN, and Southsea Festival, as well as signing to AIM Small Label of the Year Alcopop! Records…. All the while catching the eye of the likes of Huw Stephens, NME, DIY, Artrocker, XFM and Adam Walton. The sound continually draws those inevitable comparisons with the likes of Pavement, Weezer and Parquet Courts – yet their lo-fi, slacker pop is as fresh as it is irresistible.
If you missed our feature in December showcasing the new video then watch it below. Enjoy ‘Fix the Roads’ – a brand new song from the record. The adorable video, starring band pal’s Ethan and Mike (now fully grown humans), was made in their gardens in Llanelli, near Swansea at some point in the 90s under the title ‘Jungle Beasts’. Filming duties were split between the two of them and mike’s dad. The music was written some point later on, no doubt with this masterpiece in mind.
