Wake up and smell the rose-scented pop revolution! With one foot firmly tapping in the future, Sean O'Hagan's Radum Calls, Radum Calls obviously features his inimitable songwriting sensibilities, but also incorporates influence from a new generation of talent Sean's been working with as producer and arranger the last few years while overseeing The High Llamas. All this energy - and songs derived from world history, ambition, and humour - makes for irresistible ear candy that moves from delicious flavour to delicious flavour as the palette requires! 

Radum Calls, Radum Calls also draws on the past, as its second single, "Candy Clock," brings Sean's former Microdisney vocal-partner Cathal Coughlan aboard to sing the listener into fantastic, elastic, unknowable worlds! A charming reunion threaded with hard-punching drums, high flying synths, and  shimmering orchestration, "Candy Clock" showcases the musical history of Sean O'Hagan from past to present, all wrapped up in an exquisitely melodic bow! 

Listen to "Candy Clock" above and set your alarms for October 25th when Radum Calls, Radum Calls finally is released!
