Radianation is the project of lifelong Louisville, Kentucky-based musician, Andrew N. Aebersold.
Forming from the ashes of the 90’s rave scene, Radiation now shifts its style to one that features elements of alternative and electronic rock. Their instrumentation blurs the lines between what is tangible and what is not. Their music evokes mature angst on a magnificent scale, with just the right amount of human emotion to distance themselves from their old contemporaries and what some may consider robotic. Heavy beats with crystal clear snare and cymbals, and epic, climactic hooks with crunchy guitar riffs ensure what is happening in your ears is more than a mere rave or dance party; it’s a true musical experience; one that is tinged with the human touch so many people lack in our modern era.
Combining epic soundscapes with a post-pandemic edge, Radianation’s new single “Riding Trains” encapsulates the lack of closure many felt in the spring of 2020 when our lives changed abruptly, drastically, and seemingly forever. The diverse instrumentation provides a driving beat, and layers of electric and acoustic guitar. The rest of his work incorporates elements of orchestral strings, synthesizers, and more.
Radianation’s new album drops this year.
