Charmian Devi unleashes a captivating new release, ‘Radio Of None,’ and she brings some of the world’s most recognised players along for the journey.
‘Radio Of None’ kicks off with a gripping opening guitar melody, and it leads the way to Charmian’s vocal seamlessly. Charmian gets her message underway in quick succession, and she expresses an honest narrative about loneliness and pondering on life as it rushes by outside.
The track becomes omnipotent in the chorus section, with all the sounds synergising to create a memorable rock soundscape. Charmain also delves deeper into her vocal toolkit, and she vaults out with a unique timbre which many will struggle to compare with anybody else in the current scene.
Post chorus, the mix heads back to its somewhat more tender flow, which opened the release. However, Charmian keeps away from any predictability with her vocals getting a whole new lease of life; she boasts a unique layering that adds even more weight to the already rich compound. Towards the closing stages, an electrifying organ takes us to a new realm entirely, and it provides the track with a flavour that is difficult to refuse.
‘Radio Of None’ is a track that astounds me from the get-go. However, this is not a surprise given the number of stars who team up with Charmian. Furthermore, Lenny Kaye plays the guitar, Tony Garnier is on the bass, Steve Shelley lays down the drums, and Brian Marsella gives the track shine on the organ.
