The release of 'Same Page' follows the success of recent singles “Gloria” and “Wasted Melody”. While RADARS' first two singles were self-released on a modest unsigned budget, they surpassed combined streams of over 5,000 in two short months. Thought provoking, unapologetic and understated lyrics from singer Jack make ‘Same Page’ is a defiant anthem to inspire the listener to "stand up and be counted". The colourful instrumentals originated from a bedroom jam session between guitarists Dave and Sam, before the full arrangement with bassist Calvin and drummer Joe transformed the original ideas into a foot tapping spectacle ready for the stage.
A collaboration with the reputable team of producer Barrington Mole (published by Warner Chappell), engineer Tom Carter (Whitemoor, I Set the See on Fire) fleshed out 'Same Page' during an intense studio session in Belper in early March 2020. Mastering by Pete Maher (Snow Patrol, The Killers, Katy Perry) fine-tuned the song into an example of the memorable dance indie sound that RADARS are capable of. Notable moments are the haunting pre chorus vocals of "Are you in or are you out?" and "Give me a sign you’re on your way?" which echo over the twinkling, duelling guitar riffs, and the bouncing bass line in the verses which could fill any dance floor. It’s been an eclectic journey through various line-ups and developments that have helped RADARS hone in, develop and ultimately create their unique sound. The dance indie instrumentals show influence from bands such as Foals, Two Door Cinema Club, while Jack's growling yet controlled vocals would not sound out of place on a Kings of Leon or Mumford and Sons record. 'Same Page' is a song which the majority of listeners can relate to while bearing a brand-new unique sound.
