The Rad Trads Share “Wishing Well” Video Plus New LP ‘On Tap’ Due Out 9/14

New York City-based band, The Rad Trads, share the official music video for their new single “Wishing Well.” MAGNET premiered the video with praise, stating, “But given how the band deftly tackles (alphabetically) Americana, blues, folk, jazz, psych, punk, soul and more, it’s not surprising these guys seem like they can do whatever they put their minds to.” The band just finished up the first leg of their extensive US run, which included select shows with Lake Street Dive, and they’ll kick off the next run of national dates,  throughout September and early October, with their On TapLP release show on Friday, September 14th at Mercury Lounge. In mid-October, the band heads to Spain, for a run of 10 dates throughout the country. See below for details on their tour. On Tap LP is due out September 14th (pre-order here).

On Tap serves as the world’s introduction to the diverse possibilities The Rad Trads have to offer from the studio. Revered for their live shows, On Tap sees the five songwriters pull back the curtain on their passion for arrangement and orchestration, introducing a sea of horns, harmonies, gritty grooves, and psychedelic guitar textures. Songs like “Thumbtack” and “The Little Pie Blues” share a nod towards their playful use of acoustic instruments while powerhouses “Good Luck Unto Ya” and “Wishing Well” make for unbridled bookends. “My Place” and “Key Club” highlight the diverse sonic pallet the band has grown to embrace. The band’s contagious fun-loving nature shines throughout, a feeling that their fans will find familiar.
