French musician and producer Fred Falke releases the “Alpha” EP, his first new batch of music in more than four years, on Pantheon Musique. With Falke handling bass, keyboard and programming duties, his “Alpha” four-track EP is an infectious showcase of Falke’s eclecticism.
In conjunction with the EP, Fred Falke offers the music video to the EP’s lead single, Radio Days. Writing at Thump, Josh Glazer noted: “Here’s the scene: A vintage Oldsmobile tuned in to an oldies FM disc jockey playing 70s disco sounds while driving through the Southern California desert, on the way to a make an underhanded exchange of a briefcase full of mysterious something. No, it’s not a Tarantino flick. Instead, it’s the video for Radio Days, a new track by Frenchman Fred Falke, whose recent years spent living in Los Angeles have clearly driven the endless sunshine obsession-already apparent in his decades-old ‘french touch’ releases-to its logical conclusion on this ode to ‘sweet sounds.'”
The “disco-drenched California throwback” of a music video seamlessly awakens the already bliss-filled sound waves of the Chic-filtered, L.A-inspired disco tune, featuring a voiceover from legendary Los Angeles radio DJ ‘Shotgun’ Tom Kelly. The “Alpha” EP also features a gentle sing-along pop number featuring Elohim and Mansions On The Moon, It’s A Memory, dance floor burner All Of My Love, and a the solid groove machine Crepuscule with it’s danceable guitar licks courtesy of celebrated guitarist Brent Paschke.
