If you’re looking for an instant, feel-good, mood-enhancing elixir that’s ultra-safe and makes a bad day A-OK, look no further than Sub-Radio. These six guys—Adam Bradley (lead vocals), Matt Prodanovich (guitar/vocals), Michael Pereira (drums), John Fengya (guitar / keys), Barry Siford (bass), Kyle Cochran (guitar/keys)—are equal parts heart and raw pop talent. Whether it’s a ballad like “Clark Kent” or dance-ready “Disco”, they manage to take themselves not-too-seriously-but-just-seriously-enough—so that if Sub-Radio’s throwing the party, you know wanna be there. Check out their livestream via Caravan Social Club on April 1 at 8:30 p.m. (EST)—be sure to RSVP.

Their new single “What You Want to Hear” was inspired by a need for connection. Lead singer Adam Bradley explains: “It’s been an insane, draining year for everyone and we’ve spent it looking for ways to connect with our fans and take care of our friends and family. ‘What You Want to Hear’ is based on that experience, this big frenetic song with a ton of hooks and distractions that’s also about loving each other.”
