Radkey are three brothers from Missouri who are, if there is any justice in this world, about to break it big. They play short, catchy little numbers that get your toes tapping, and are clearly quite angry about a lot of things but in a calm and clear manner, rather than an unfocused frenzy. Their sound is halfway between the more melodic hardcore punk and doom metal, but with a subtle modern touch to it (think The Misfits and Saint Vitus if they had grown up listening to Nirvana), finely complimented by the booming and clear voice of singer Dee.

Currently they have their two EPs (Devil Fruit and Cat & Mouse) up on their website for free, or you can do what I did and just buy their collection now as this is clearly brilliant music that is just bursting to the brim with excitement, youth, and joie-de-vivre. Really, really, exciting stuff.

Listen to it.
