The top of the show finds Bradley sitting on a stool sipping red wine and singing a gentle song of love lost. Minutes later, Bradley is on his feet, screaming through a megaphone at a muse only he can see. All the while, a barrage of eclectic beats attack from his back up band: a glowing laptop. It’s clear, Toto, that we are not in Kansas anymore...
Bradley merges the classic singer-songwriter genre with raw electronica. Using a combination of acoustic and computer generated notes; the songs of Bradley put a gentle voice and sweet melodies in direct contrast with distorted, digital beats. Pretty string arrangements sound over sub-harmonic bass, carefully placed pieces of noise float in the background while a novation synth wails in the near distance. It’s non-traditional. And it works.
