Cumbrian power-punk father-daughter duo Voodoo Radio continue to hurtle along since the release of debut record, Pop Pills via Holy Dotage Records back in January 2022. That collection of eight self-penned songs of pure pop-punk slayed all-comers. The band have continued to gain momentum since last year playing Twisterella and Kendall Calling, and having stacks of support from BBC Introducing Cumbria and plaudits from Louder Than War, Loud Women and Vive le Rock Magazine.
Consisting of singer/drummer Paige and her father, Tony, on guitar, the duo started out rocking the tunnels of Leicester Square tube station in 2018. Their ‘summer of 76’ power-pop sound caught the attention of commuters and tourists alike, and it was during one of these sessions that they were discovered by their current label Holy Dotage Records.
Tony, a seasoned performer was inspired by hearing Slaves on the radio and suggested to young Paige: “get two shoe boxes, anything that’s like a drum stick – a table knife and a wooden spoon and see if you can sing and play rhythms whilst hitting a beat” – Paige did just that and Voodoo Radio was born. With a sound that has been described as something between Transvision Vamp and Stray Cats with Eddie Van Halen guitars, they are tying up 2022 with signature verve.
