Randy Ludwig (vocals/guitars/bass), Tony Robles (guitars) and Amos Przekaza (drums) are Radio Fiction. The band recently released Dizzy Box Nine. Apparently Dizzy Box Nine is a limited edition EP which features "Show Me Everything That You Are" and "GPA" from the upcoming album Last Call Before The Fall, which is slated for a spring 2021 release.
The album starts with “Show Me Everything That You Are” which is a summer pop type of rock song and sounds somewhere between Smashmouth and Jimmy Eats World. It’s a straightforward tune that has an accessible quality.
The band continues with “GPA” which is faster moving song with motivational overtones while “Anytime Anyplace” is the one of the highlights and has more aligned with ska in some ways minus the horns.
“20 Seconds” is another solid song that embraces indie rock 101 type moves. The EP continues with “I Feel Alright,” “Crystal Rae” and the more ballad like “I Won’t Let You Down” which is another highlight. The band embraces a more summer pop vibe again with “Yeah You” and the more pensive and folk inspired “My Last Day.”
This album was well produced and engineered. The fidelity was quite good. As far as the songs it was more hit and miss. I had some personal preferences in terms of style which was a mix between the more ballad like songs and also the harder hitting songs. The songs felt predictable without any surprise, good or bad.
Overall, there were some solid songs in the batch from a talented band.
