The Radar Station – The Giant

I already loved The Radar Station when they were still Sun Gods. The name change may have been forced upon them by some other supreme beings of the heat-loving kind, but it resulted in the bandโ€™s breakthrough. With a new version of their superb track Subtle Science they won โ€˜De Nieuwe Lichting 2020โ€™, a talent program of Belgian alternative pop station Studio Brussel. The airplay which followed, resulted in a Top 10 hit on the stationโ€™s chart โ€˜De Afrekeningโ€™.

Fast forward to the bandโ€™s new single. Will they be able to pull it off again? 2020 isnโ€™t likely to become a year of many certainties. However, I wouldnโ€™t shy away from putting some money on the new track. It simply lives up to its title: The Giant. Fans of bands like The War On Drugs and Snow Patrol are sure to like this one again. And fans of Brent Bucklerโ€™s characteristic voice can rest assured as well. All of these winning components are back on board. That said, The Radar Station only use these ingredients to brew a sound of their own. A sound thatโ€™s equal parts pop and rock, both radio and stadium friendly.

The track comes with a very ingenious video. It tells the story of a very big man, who is forced to work as a strongman in a traveling circus. It looks like the only way he could provide for his family, but the giant is actually a master of the much more subtle art of painting.
