Based out of South Carolina, artist Phillip Gilchrist has recently released a new single in support of an upcoming EP. Song On The Radio is an endlessly fun and catchy electro-pop tune that is full of great energy, feeling like a little sonic slice of summertime.
Gilchrist has pulled in real-life inspiration for this track, stating that Song On The Radio is written about a moment when Gilchrist locked eyes with his girlfriend and they danced as if they were the only people in the world. This authentic inspiration gives us both insight into his songwriting style as well as an additional understanding of the theme of the track – this relatable moment makes it easy to appeal to a wide audience.
And appeal it does. This track is expertly produced, with gorgeously melodic synths and a great driving beat, as well as a great build across the track that keeps the overall energy level rising. It’s truly well-executed modern pop music that could easily stand alongside artists like Shawn Mendes or DJ Khaled. True to its name, it’s almost effortless to imagine this song actually playing on your favorite radio station, and it would make an excellent soundtrack to everything summer, from late nights at the beach to long drives down the coast.
The story this track tells is a classic tale of young love but with the addition of Gilchrist’s own personal flair. The idea that hearing a song on the radio can take you back to one amazing night might be familiar, but Gilchrist’s take on this idea captures a more modern angle that keeps the concept feeling new and fresh. And to top it off, the hook has a strong melody and is catchy as can be – you’ll find yourself singing along to the chorus on your first listen through the song.
Overall, this track is a great showing of artistic and production skill by Phillip Gilchrist. And with Song On The Radio, we can all feel like we can hold on to a piece of summer for just a little bit longer. For fans of modern pop music, this song will fit right in with all of your existing favorites and is an easy must-add to your end-of-summer playlist.
