Radical Face is the moniker held by Ben Cooper, the solo project from one half of Electric President. This project is blends a sound familiar in that band, but with fewer electronics and more orchestration along the lines of eclectic orchestral groups Efterklang and Anathallo, mixed with a little Michael Nau (Page France, Cotton Jones). “Doorways” is similarly melodic and features an off-beat piano. The song is off the band’s latest release, a beautifully crafted, six-song EP called Touch The Sky.
Surprisingly enough, Cooper plans to release three full-length albums over the next year under the Radical Face name in what he dubs “The Family Tree” trilogy; it will be made up of Roots, Branches and Relatives. Coopers music has always been playful, and it’s quite apparent in Radical Face. The video for “Doorways” follows suit. Check it out below and snag yourself the mp3 while you’re at it.
