We’re bringing you one of the most interesting acts bursting out of Berlin’s vibrant music scene. They’re called The Flavians and they have just released a very classy debut single that is bound to set them up for big things down the line.
Entitled On the Radio, The Flavians have created a song with a mysterious storyline that’s already gaining plenty of praise across Europe. It’s upbeat with a distinctive indie-pop sound that sticks in your mind instantly.
While the single fits into the modern world very well, there’s a strong influence of older bands like The Beatles buried into it – which becomes even clearer knowing that they recorded it all on gear from the 60s and 70s. Made up of gritty vocals, rocked up guitars and an undeniably catchy chorus, On the Radio is a song that will leave you wanting much more.
The Flavians explain the storyline behind On the Radio:
“It’s about a schizophrenic who calls into a drivetime radio show while speeding through a red light. He then finds himself startled and tied up in a hospital bed with only flashbacks of his previous night. Despite what he is told, he begins questioning if it ever even happened and asks himself, “who is this person on the radio talking with the same voice as me.”
With a debut album in the making, it’s clear that The Flavians are a highly original modern band with a vintage twist – they have the perfect image to go with it too. Made up of members from the UK, Sweden and the Czech Republic, this four-piece are definitely ones to keep on your radar – they’ll definitely be on ours.
