Crusier’s new release, “Kidnap Me” is 80% modern, über-catchy pop, and 20% borderline creepy adoration. Here at OurDeadRadio, we love creepy adoration. Cruiser began in Philadelphia as Andy States’ bedroom recording project. Now, as a quartet, Cruiser is establishing an eternally summery identity in the indie-pop world. “Kidnap Me” is immediately playful — and the track’s hook boasts a severe bite: ‘Shackle me up and lock it, I could live in your pocket. When you gonna kidnap me? When you gonna kidnap me? Take me away from here, I could see it so clear. When you gonna kidnap me?’ Listen to “Kidnap Me” and let it stay with you like a perfectly mysterious memory of summer.
This dance band from Spain makes perfect summer music. Using a variety of instruments and synth effects, the track “LA Calling” demonstrates Crystal Fighters adoration for California love. They sing, ‘LA calling, bathed in sunlight… I don’t want them, I want you.’ Take a listen.
The title of this track is fitting, considering the amazing pop force of Dan Croll seemed to come right out of nowhere. But we’re glad he’s arrived. The British songwriter has that awe-inspiring natural British talent — he creates upbeat, danceable tunes with inspiring musical integrity. He’s an artist to keep an eye on and an open ear to. Give this track, “From Nowhere” a spin.
Beginning as a small music venture in the summer of 2012, OurDeadRadio was produced as a solution to common problems transmitted through the airwaves: tuning frustration, exhaustive pop-processing, and unoriginal repetitive top-twenty tracks. This site is dedicated to the relentless mix-makers, eclectic music junkies and compulsive indie gem scourers of the world. OurDeadRadio is a carefully selected preview of what is good and thriving and ultimately, what is rarely heard on the radio. From indie up-and-comers to dusty tracks of the past, OurDeadRadio presents what is not often produced through standard FM stations. As a cultivation of music found though blogs, local scenes, and submissions, please enjoy the sounds of OurDeadRadio.
