Radius Kink - Album Review: Orange Room

24 Nov 2021 // A review by Kerry MB

Radius Kink have been around for a while now with a few releases up their sleeve, so it’s hard to believe this ‘new’ release of theirs is actually ten years old.

The five piece hailing from Christchurch is made up of father and daughter, Dawn Hendriske (vocals, guitar) Gary Hendriske (vocals, bass), a next door neighbour and couple of mates (in no particular order) Gordon Goodinson (vocals, guitar) and Simon Gemmill (drums, keyboard, guitar).

Having sat on a shelf after its initial recording, the songs were revisited, re tweaked and finally saw the light of day.

With a sound that most definitely has a 70’s vibe. It’s a very chill summer album with plenty of harmony and melody but also not one particular genre. Combining a bit of everything the ten tracks stand out as uniquely theirs. Charming and beautifully written.

The stand-out tracks for me are Keep in Touch and the title track Orange Room. They're both beautiful and melodic pieces.

Sometimes good things really do take time and I look forward to future releases from Radius Kink.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )
 

About Radius Kink

A father and daughter duo team up with their guitarist next-door neighbor and form a band that has endured a ten-year relationship. 3 very different styles and tastes create a sound that is familiar, but with a touch of ‘Je ne sais quoi’.

The leaves the listener with a sense of musical deja vu, as if this new sound still fits like comfortable slippers.
