Masters Of The Radio’s latest single Wings is available now on iTunes and Amazon and this cheeky slice of synth-pop is worth checking out. Singer-songwriter Anthony Paul Stevens has the look of Phil Oakey about him during The Human League’s pomp. And at this time of year that is not a bad thing. After all, we all love grooving to the-greatest-Christmas-number-one-of-all-time, Don’t You Want Me, Baby? And just like The Human League, Masters Of The Radio love their synths, their dark-brooding bass-lines and getting people on the dance-floor.
Masters Of The Radio have been around since 2008. They hail from Cheshire and cite Depeche Mode and Goldfrapp as major influences. Wings is three minutes of sultry beats that testify to those influences. It is a well-produced track and the B-side, Powers Of Reality offers more of the same. The raucous licks and that power the songs will have no problems filling the dance-floors. It is a shame that the single does not have anything else to offer. Powers Of Reality was already released as a single in May and the overall experience leaves the listener wanting more.
