The Radio Field – She Needs Therapy (Single Version)

Shortly before their debut album Don’ts and Dos drops (Aug 25) The Radio Field release their third single She Needs Therapy. Slightly more jubilant than its predecessors the harmony-laden song instantly takes you on a coastal road trip with the top rolled down. In full contrast to that the lyrics broach the issue that people with depressions are often left alone by their community, even family and close friends.

Note: She Needs Therapy will appear on the forthcoming album in a different, noisier mix.

First Press Quotes 

She Needs Therapy’ did its ‘What You Do To Me’ like Teenage Fanclub thang but also gave us some lovely boy/girl harmonies.  I felt as if the sun had come out even though it hasn’t stopped raining all day MP3 HUGGER

… gloriously crisp, clear jangled riffs and the incessant rhythms of college rock never being far from the fore. START TRACK

Il brano ci regala meravigliose melodie, chitarre energiche e belle armonie e ci porta dritto verso l’indie-pop scozzese caldo e rassicurante che tanto ci piace. INDIE FOR BUNNIES

Maximum hook potential. A bit of snappiness with a huge wallop of volume have this single sitting as one of the LPs standouts AUSTIN TOWN HALL

Band Bio (long version)

So here i was in late 2020, the first year of the pandemic. We were in our second lockdown and things at home started becoming more and more a routine. My band Subterfuge had just recently reformed and our album Dots. was in the final stages of recording, where my parts were fully done already. Also for my other, almost life-long project The Modern Air & Space Society on which I had been working for the last 15 years (still to be released) all recordings had been made and I was still waiting for my partner Lomp to create the corresponding comic.

Some say it only takes enough boredom and a musical instrument to create something good. I picked up the guitar much more than usual while the Social Media work for Subterfuge had reminded me a lot of the heyday of my musical socialisation: C86, early Creation, US College Rock. Within a couple of days a handful of songs came out just like this. All shops were closed at the time so I mail-ordered a Rickenbacker 12-string, got the AC30 home from the practice room and started recording those songs. Josephine came with the train one Saturday, sang her angelic backing vocals in the corner between the wall and the wardrobe and my son Gustav added some high notes right in time before he went into his puberty vocal change. And so this was that.

On its release the reactions to Simple EP were close to overwhelming. Not only was there lots of interest and very positive feedback, i was also asked by good friends if we should form a real band out of it. And here we are now with Mark Specht (Drums, founding member of Subterfuge), Christoph Scheider (Bass, former member of Klee, Clayton Farlow, Soap, Soccer) and Philipp Breuer (Lead Guitar, of Pale fame) and myself. With people sharing similar tastes and a musical vision an album full of songs was arranged in no time and recordings were started already at the second rehearsal. From first ideas to a longplayer (album drops in August) in a bit over half a year is an absolute record time in my personal musical story and the result still entails more of myself than any other release before.

Aren’t three musical outlets (I have another postal indie electro band called Quent, which had a break at the time too) enough i was asked. And the answer probably should have been a clear yes. Well, you wouldn’t be reading these lines if I had followed that advice. And hey, isn’t it the silly and superfluous that is the most fun?
