Radiant Baby Announce New LP, Share “Réputation”

Radiant Baby announces their upcoming LP, Pantomine, out September 24th on Lisbon Lux. The lead single from the album, “Réputation”, is out now. Brooklyn Vegan premiered the track, praising it as “a bouncy, sing-a-long synthpop number with a stylish (and weird) music video.”

The album explores the tension between fantasy and reality. The characters in the songs vainly pursue various fantasies: bodily, romantic and musical perfection, broken or impossible dreams, and the frenetic euphoria of party, performance and love.

Radiant Baby wants the album to convey feelings of longing, loss and frustration. Throughout the songs, different characters face the limits of reality in the midst of impossible fantasies. They attempt to quench their thirst for intense sensations, vacillating between hope and disillusion. The aesthetic of the album reflects opposing feelings and therefore combines two contrasting musical atmospheres: a raw, punk, glam rock, rough, dramatic and melancholic atmosphere versus a romantic, light, dreamy and gentle atmosphere.
