The Radio Sun: Heaven Or Heartbreak
This four-piece Melbourne band know plenty about sun. And they’re just as clued-in when it comes to making music fit for the radio. They play a style of melodic hard rock that’s unfussy and pretension-free, echoing such titans of the genre as Harem Scarem, Trixter, a keyboard-free House Of Lords and Nelson. They retain the formula established with Wrong Things Right, their 2014 melodic pop masterclass, and former Danger Danger frontman Paul Laine remains behind the mixing console.
