Wiccans & Beatlemancers, the new EP from Cardiff’s Radstewart is available now from Alcopop! Records. Stream HERE.

Having seen their self recorded (on a physics department microphone) debut EP sell out, supporting Sky Larkin on their tour and drawing packed crowds at Green Man, SWN, and Southsea Festival, the band signed to AIM Small Label of the Year Alcopop! Records last year. Their breezy, quick-witted indie-pop has already charmed the likes of Huw Stephens, NME, Noisey, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY and XFM, who’ve all pledged their support for the Cardiff four-piece. Despite their sound drawing comparison to luminaries including Pavement, Weezer and Parquet Courts, their lo-fi, slacker pop is as fresh as it is irresistible.

The band are currently on toure with labelmates Johnny Foreigner. Remaining dates as follows:

22nd The Flapper – Birmingham w/Johnny Foreigner
27th JT Soar – Nottingham w/ Johnny Foreigner
28th Clwb Ifor Bach – Cardiff w/ Johnny Foreigner
29th The Star Inn – Guilford w/ Johnny Foreigner
30th Moles – Bath w/ Johnny Foreigner
31st Borderline – London w/ Johnny Foreigner

3rd The Harley – Sheffield w/Johnny Foreigner
4th Shits Freaky Club – Durham TBC w/ Johnny Foreigner
5th Lounge 41 – Workington w/ Johnny Foreigner

Press quotes

“Early lo-fi recordings have earned this four piece a reputation as the British Parquet Courts, but there’s a load more melody and pathos to these Cardiff-based beta-males.” NME
“They’re making lo-fi and DIY noises without sounding forced, without an apparent conscious desire to do so. It sounds genuine, and they sound like they’re having fun.” The Line Of Best Fit
“… full of dry wit, and bold declarations primarily influenced by Parquet Courts.” DIY
“Essentially, they’re all-round winners, ‘Insane Parties’ sounding like the gossip-fuelled comedown session in your mate’s bedroom on Sunday morning.” Noisey
“The intricate wit makes the marriage of the sounds become clear” – Rock Sound
“Ragged and raw, Radstewart’s effortlessly off kilter, hopelessly surreal songwriting seeps into every pore.” Clash
“… they pull off the nigh on impossible task of making standoffish slacker rock sound compelling and full of emotions” HMV
