Beat Radio

Beat Radio is the perpetually-evolving project of Bellmore, Long Island’s Brian Sendrowitz, who’s been crafting hazy, literate, heartfelt pop songs under the name since 2005. In its current form as a duo (joined by a second Brian on drums), the band has been working on a fourth full-length album, Hard Times, Go!, with the additional help of a network of friends and collaborators. Inspired by nostalgia for an innocence that may or may not have ever been (mixtapes, sitcoms, pure pop music) and driven by a strong DIY ethic, the LP is an expansive, adventurous concept record that makes good on its promise to find a space that falls comfortably between Sendrowitz’s musical heroes: Bruce Springsteen and Robyn. Even BTR Live Studio’s host, Maia Macdonald, gets in on the fun, joining the band for a duet on vocals for the song “Stars Collided In Our Hearts” for this special session.

Featured song: “Teenage Anthem For The Drunken Boat”

Hard Times, Go! is available digitally in two parts and will be released on vinyl by Awkward For Life.
