My New Discoveries 8- Radical Face

Radical Face

Radical Face is Electric President's (Another amazing band) Ben Cooper and his first album the excellent "Ghost" is a dark little selection of ditties based around the concept that if houses had memories what would they recall. It's a nice little concept and the various songs are linked together by it, but exist in their own private narratives of seperate events occuring in these memories. The songs are mostly shimmeringly sunsetesque upbeat with soothing harmonies, playground whistling and driving percussion but with a real sense of melancholy underneath through Cooper's intimate vocal delievery, layered instruments and subtle pop songs.
