Makes Noises Like
Something dark, something mysterious. Poet Radio is a dark psych rock band with occultist undertones. #witcheswhorock
Poet Radio began in a Northern Michigan basement, when two former members of The Vermeers, frontwoman and songwriter Madison Maxwell and drummer Ryan Cole got together to turn some of the former’s original acoustic songs into something poppy and electric.
Since adding North Carolina native, bassist Kevin Freeman, the band’s sound has evolved into something a bit darker, often described as occult psych. However, there’s still a strong pop sensibility in much of the music they’re writing these days. These songs are danceable, singable, and memorable, despite covering topics like witchcraft, drugs, politics, and bondage.
