The Boo Radleys
About The Boo Radleys
The Boo Radleys walk a crooked line between overdriven shoegaze and breezy dream pop. Combining guitarist Martin Carr's off-the-beam songwriting and Sice's choirboy-pure vocals, they began making blown-out noise rock on 1990's Ichabod & I, then gradually folded in influences like hip-hop, dub, orchestral pop, psychedelia, and electronica on a series of singles, EPs, and albums coming to fruition with 1993's Giant Steps, then hitting the mainstream on 1995's chart-topping Wake Up! After that brush with fame, they made a record that challenged their newfound fans (1996's C'mon Kids) and searched to find a new direction (1998's Kingsize). The effort to carve a new path proved too much and the band split, until they reconvened without Carr to record new music. The result, 2022's Keep on with Falling, proves that the band's mix of classic melodies, crafty hooks, and uplifting choruses still sounds just as good decades later.
