Radio Coma - Single Review: Too Young To Die

06 Nov 2017 // A review by Tony McDonald

Head banging on the front row, covered in beer, sweat and waves of pushing & shoving. Too Young To Die instantly transports you to a live venue. So much energy and passion that you could be right there in the thick of it.

Where to start?

Well this is a radio Hauraki summer hit, for sure!!

If you like indie rock, think Black Keys, then this is for you. Great riffs and bass / drum combos. What sets Radio Coma a part is the female vocals from Jo Kelsey, which are amazing.

What are you waiting for. Check it out here on Bandcamp.

Radio Coma: When you are in Wellington please let me know and I will come along to write a gig review.

About Radio Coma

Rock n' Roll with sweat and groove.

Based in Auckland, Radio Coma evoke blues rock sounds similar to Led Zeppelin, Rival Sons, Jack White and The Black Keys. Formed in 2016, the four piece - Ozan Turan (guitars), Jo Kelsey (vocals), Johann de Guigné (bass) and Loujean Philander, (drums) - came together from different corners of the world to create heavy rock and roll. Radio Coma brings together a worldwide host of influences to their riff-driven songwriting, completed with hard-hitting drums and soaring soulful vocals from Jo; a classically trained vocalist with a rock attitude routed in the bluesy sounds of Etta James, Robert Plant and Aretha Franklin.

Shortly after forming, the band began self-producing their first record in their home, known as The Blue House, with a debut single and a follow up set for release in 2017. The band’s style of writing and recording songs in a home-live setting is what keeps Radio Coma’s music honest.

The Diamond Dead - EP Review: Becoming
20 Mar 2019 // by Tony McDonald
Having already reviewed the song and video for Track 1 No Revolution, and absolutely loving everything about it, I jumped at the chance to review this small 3-song EP by The Diamond Dead. In my previous review, I described No Revolution as the female equivalent of Marilyn Manson in song sound and video style, an absolute classic and one you must check out.

Gig Review: Skinny Hobos @ Valhalla, Wellington - 19/01/2019
22 Jan 2019 // by Tony McDonald
One of Wellington's last great venues was kicking out rock odour once more as the Skinny Hobos took to the stage. It's 10:45pm and the murky undertones of Valhalla were ringing out in the streets before I even entered the venue.

The Diamond Dead - Single/Video Review: No Revolution
16 Jan 2019 // by Tony McDonald
Wearing little more than a red bra the female equivalent of Marilyn Manson is trapped inside a chaotic room. This crazy thought-provoking video tries and succeeds to crawl under your skin.

Gig Review: Darryl Baser @ Moon, Wellington - 18/08/2018

Unfortunately, Moon wasn't rocking this Saturday night in Newtown. The crowds may have been watching the All Blacks in a nearby bar.

The Whiskey Show - Single Review: Vengeance
12 Oct 2017 // by Tony McDonald
This is a classic old school rock song with a modern 'Black Keys' style drum and bass feel thrown in. Dene's vocals are great for this genre, and Scott's guitaring is stunningly good.
