Video: »radiant devices« - 'Much Less Desired'

By Frank Krolicki

The line between unsettling and alluring is often a fine one, and that's something Chicago's »radiant devices« seem to know well. With a poetic, daring sung/spoken vocal approach from frontwoman Mojdeh Stoakley over menacing, experimental post-punk instrumentation, it sounds off-kilter enough to make you a bit uneasy, while at the same time offering enough that pleases the senses to keep you wanting to hear more. To see what I mean, check out the band's latest video for their track "Much Less Desired," which manages to effectively transfer the biting feel of the track into visual form. And if you like what you hear, be sure to check out »radiant devices« live on Thursday, April 11th at Tonic Room or at Double Door on Thursday, April 25th. Also check out their single "Hell Hath No Fury" here and be on the lookout for a full length album in May.
