Bio

Radiant City are a band from Melbourne... “Whether revelling in the explosive and insidious or the eerie and transcendent, Radiant City’s sonic creations are unremittingly thrilling and intensely hypnotic. Across their three EPs - (self-titled), Judith and Terminal Drift - the Melbourne post-rock duo captivated listeners with their mind-bending instrumental journeys. Drawing inspiration from Fugazi and other great bands attached to Dischord Records (the revered indie punk/post-hardcore/experimental label based in Washington, D.C.), Radiant City have truly come into their own with a powerful and expansive debut album in No Errors.” Beat Magazine ...read more at www.radiantcity.net/bio

A very experimental progressive rock instrumental piece. The track begins with a heap of distortion and other weird sounds, in some parts being reminiscent of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music. The sounds gradually progress to resemble a fast paced grungy punk rock tune. It then gradually morphs into a chilled out ambient sounds before finally fading off into obscurity.

Once again Radiant City are pushing their sound in everyday possible and are coming up with some weird and wonderful results!

A strong experimental tune in the vein of Season of Trent Reznor's more experimental moments. The powerful drums at the start set the scene while the grungy guitars gradually phase in to eventually climax as a massive wall of sound. Once again there is a good use of distortion to create various layers and a s solid atmosphere. This is yet another amazing tune showing just how much can be a...

Once again there is a good use of distortion to create various layers and a s solid atmosphere. This is yet another amazing tune showing just how much can be achieved from just two members (4.5 stars)!

An experimental progressive rock tune in the vein of Mike Oldfield or early Pink Floyd. This Melbourne two piece are continuing to push musical boundaries here all sorts of interesting feedback and looping sounds that are held together with a solid grungy guitar riffs and and thumping drum beat. The song slowly unravels taking the listener on a strange ambient journey with a range of unusual stops along the way. The wall of sound the band are able to create draws the listener in and keeps them there for the whole 10 minutes and the song takes on different shapes and imagery! This is brilliant experimental stuff!
