RADIOAKTIVISTS - Debut Album Out Soon, First Track Unveiled

German quartet Radioaktivists will release their debut album entitled Radioakt One on 30th November through Dependent. The band unveiled the first track out of the album and you can hear in the player below rather melancholic danceable electronic club anthem "Raiders".
Radioaktivists is the new electronic project of Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand), Frank Spinath (Seabound), Daniel Myer (Architect) and Sascha Lange. They debuted on the compilation Dependence 2012 with the single "Pieces Of Me" already in 2012 and impressed not only DJ's, but also had fans clamoring for a full album. However, the band decided to take time to hone their sound and overall modus operandi before delivering the meisterwerk that is Radioakt One.
But who are these activists? Frank Spinath, psychologist and lead singer icon of various  groups/projects that include Seabound, Edge Of Dawn and Lionhearts, is here working for the first time with Daniel Myer (of Haujobb, Architect and Liebknecht). Krischan Wesenberg is well known as the studio wizard in the duo Rotersand and Future Lied To Us but has also made a name for himself as a sound engineer, producer and remixer for other artists. Sascha Lange is the author of several books on the Depeche Mode fan scene in the former East Germany.
This diverse line-up have eventually aligned themselves and forged an album that lives up to early expectations, although Radioakt One also reveals other unexpected surprises. Containing elements of club, dark pop and what Lange calls "electronic shoegaze", the term "electronic noire" has already been applied to it. An album of depth with an almost introverted feel, a series of short stories form the core of the electronic narrative and help forge the intriguing and unique identity of Radioaktivists, including a tale written by Lange included in the limited edition that relates a late night encounter with a mysterious female hitchhiker on a rain-flooded German motorway.
Radioaktivists have certainly taken a walk off the well-trodden path with their debut album. Although offering strong club oriented songs such as "Raiders" and "Reach Out", it also shines a spotlight on their moodier and more subtle electronic noire compositions and invites the listener to explore its depths and different sides over repeated plays.
