Radius of Action
Mayday Radio is the latest underground rock band to surface in New York City's ocean of indie music. The music is an electrical rainstorm of sound fueled by pop sounds and grunge hooks and inspired by bands like U2, Pearl Jam, Coldplay & The Killers to name a few. The songs are a deliberate ebb and flow between controlled intensity and unbridled passion and the lyrical themes run the gamut from personal pain to a lament on the state of society. Churning in the wake of influences from numerous eras of rock [classic, 80's, grunge] Mayday Radio has formed it's own version of stylish rock that captures great songwriting [2007 Finalist, SongDoor], true melodies and inspiring dynamics. The creative pulse of Mayday Radio is Jeff Ting, a classically trained pianist who balanced his childhood days practicing his Beethoven sonatas and wailing on his Fender Stratocaster. Ting eventually began writing lyrics and composing music. The result is Mayday Radio. Mayday Radio's first record, The Subtle Divide , was received very positively by press and local radio and they have since cultivated a strong following.
