We’ve got another great Monday motivational track for you to start your week off with. Sub-Radio’s latest single “Out Of My Mind” was just released at the end of last month, and the music video, filmed by Kurt Heyde, was just released last week. It is an upbeat, danceable number that fans would expect, though lead guitarist Matt Prodanovich is notes that it is “much heavier on guitar and a little grittier than what we’re used to playing.”
That may also be true of the lyrical content as well. “Out Of My Mind” finds Sub-Radio going in a darker and heavier direction, narrating the struggle to forget a prior relationship. Lead vocalist Adam Bradly contributes this tone to some of the seclusion accompanied by recent events: “I’ve had a lot of time to myself this year like everybody else, and that means a lot of time to sit and stew on things in my past. This song kind of grew out of that overthinking. You start to look around for anything that’ll get that one memory out of your head, even just for a minute.”
This track has been added to our Alchemical Weekly Spotify Playlist and YouTube Playlist. You can find Sub-Radio as a guest on the Alchemicast podcast with Andy Reed when their episode is featured next month on May 26. We hope it kickstarts a great week for you in music, and in life!

When Jamie Darken first began writing the songs that would appear on his debut solo EP, Burial, he imagined he was crafting demos for Cherry Ames, a local Washington DC area indie-rock band that Darken performs as vocalist, guitarist, and bassist. With Cherry Ames on hiatus amidst the global shutdown and performing in venues unavailable as an option, Darken’s drive to make progress with the ideas on his own eventually brought the tracks to the place where it simply felt right to release as his own project. The result is five songs written, produced, and performed by Darken, with the exception of leading single “This Could Be Your Home” co-written with fellow DC area musician Christopher Mathews-Larsen.
