Radical Face is an American musician who has gained attention in the indie music genre with his unique brand of musical genius. Incorporating haunting melodies with raw vocals and creative lyrics, Radical Face presents songs in a most original manner. When I first heard Radical Face’s work, I was blown away by the sheer beauty and originality of his work. Years later, Radical Face still gets frequent play on my mp3 player. Here is a look at five of the best songs by Radical Face yet, and why I will be an avid fan for years to come.
One of the most beautiful songs by Radical Face I have heard yet is “Welcome Home.” Complete with the sounds of wind chimes, clapping, the lovely vocals of Ben Cooper, and inspiring instrumental accompaniment, “Welcome Home” is strange yet completely beautiful. This was the first song I ever heard by Radical Face, and it remains my favorite.
Another great song by Radical Face is “Wandering.” Keeping in pace with many of his other wonderful songs, “Wandering” features original lyrics, a mellow vibe, and a beautiful sound overall. “Wandering” is the ultimate Radical Face song to chill out to.
“Always Gold” is a tremendously beautiful song by Radical Face. The song has warm undertones that eases listeners into the song, and then seals the deal with the beautiful vocals and lyrics. “Always Gold” is the song that shows that Radical Face certainly has more than one layer of musical talent, and the best is yet to come.
Another beautiful song by Radical Face is “Mountains.” “Mountains” has a strange but lovely quality to it, but I think that is what draws me in. Similar to Radical Face’s other songs, “Mountains” has poetic lyrics that tell a story, while the song has a sound quality that defies explanation.
“The Dead Waltz”
One of my favorite songs by Radical Face by a long metric is “The Dead Waltz.” This song is strangely uplighting with its piano playing and beautiful vocals. “The Dead Waltz” is a prime example of how Radical Face can turn a song into a work of pure genius by intricately weaving highs and lows into his pieces. “The Dead Waltz” displays Radical Face’s talent at its finest.
