Dan Boeckner does not stop – his reunion with Wolf Parade and return to older Handsome Furs aside, he’s releasing “Radiant Dawn”, the sophomore album of his current trio Operators. “Radiant Dawn” sounds like a dystopian version of 70’s synth-laden rock crossbred with vaporwave aesthetics, and is arguably his best output since Handsome Furs – Stereogum just awarded it ‘album of the week’.
„Radiant Dawn” was released in May 2019 via Last Gang Records. The album’s nine tracks meld raw analog hardware with Dan Boeckner’s distinct voice to create an immersive cinematic sound. Interspersed between the tracks are instrumental intertitles that amplify the album’s 1970s sci-fi dystopian feel. For fans of Boeckner’s catalogue, „Radiant Dawn” feels like the next logical step in the artist’s two decade career, while maintaining a completely fresh energy.
