Runcorn's Radio Psychosis deliver stinging social commentary and post-punk vibes in 'In This Country'

  • 2 min read

Runcorn-based post-punk outfit Radio Psychosis is back with a vengeance, delivering the incisive new single 'In This Country'. The track follows up the band's acclaimed 2023 singles, 'You Can Be Anything' and 'Television', representing a bold leap forward both lyrically and sonically as they deliver stinging social commentary and stark post-punk vibes.

'In This Country' tackles the bleak realities of living paycheck-to-paycheck in a world of skyrocketing costs. Radio Psychosis confronts the status quo with sharp, biting lyrics, while the music underscores the urgency of the message, driving home the song's themes of frustration and struggle.

With an unmistakably post-punk core, 'In This Country' seamlessly weaves in elements of classic punk, indie rock, dark wave, and new wave. These eclectic influences aren't mere window-dressing; Radio Psychosis uses them to push their core sound into exciting new territory, setting them apart in the often derivative post-punk scene.

From the opening notes, guitars shimmer with a spacious reverb-drenched tone, and the charged, sonic backdrop intertwines perfectly with the dynamic vocal delivery, alternating between brooding lows and anthemic highs. Cleverly layered synths add a further dimension to the soundscape, while a thunderous, driving rhythm section underpins it all, driving the song forward alongside pulsating bass guitar and propulsive drumming.

The production quality of 'In This Country' is undeniably brilliant, with each instrument and element clearly defined. It's a testament to the band's songwriting and arranging skills that this multi-layered approach never feels cluttered or overdone, and the result is a track that retains the raw spirit of post-punk while feeling thoroughly contemporary.

A potent dose of both musical innovation and timely social consciousness, 'In This Country' is available now on all major streaming platforms.
