Long time SIMGE followers, of which you all surely are, will know that our affinity for Hoboken-based hard rockers Cicada Radio stretches all the way back to our most humble beginnings. The quartet of Pat Keefe (Guitar/Vocals), Mike Keefe (Guitar/Vocals), Josh Bartsch (Drums) and Brandon Barron (Bass) has been ripping up stages for a while now with an incendiary energy that shows no signs of slowing anytime soon.
Cicada Radio has been quite prolific in terms of releases since we first featured them, somehow managing to build and put their best foot forward. Their latest EP, Drift/Dream dropped back in October and is the band’s finest work to date.
Raw in emotions and energy, polished everywhere else, the EP was led by single “Golden Sands Motel” which sweet Satan you need to learn the refrain to right now so you can sing it back at them cathartically at an upcoming gig. Cicada Radio has never relented in their aural barrages, they’ve only found ways to make them more vibrant as this track serves as case and point.
