Total Radio Silence –
With a sound inspired by the likes of the Foo Fighters, Green Day and the Smashing Pumpkins, this song will appeal to those seeking a 90’s rock nostalgia mixed with modern, lively and upbeat production that transcends the clinical studio feel to give a live sound, which is mirrored by the bands actual live presence and energy. True to previous efforts, the band have taken the full DIY approach to the record, recording all of the instrumentation and vocals in their own homes as well as mixing and mastering done by frontman, Billy G, in his home studio space.
