Former First Thursday performer Timothy Showalter, aka Strand of Oaks, is ready to follow up his great 2014 album HEAL with a new full-length called Hard Love, out February 17th on Dead Oceans.  Earlier today, he shared the album’s lead single, “Radio Kids,” which again finds Showalter reaching back to his childhood for inspiration. In a press release, the song is described as an “ode to youth and a time when music represented something pure and uncomplicated, [which] perfectly encapsulates his desire for escapism from both his adult responsibilities and a world he no longer recognizes.” One thing’s for sure… Showalter has a big rock & roll record in store for us. Watch the video for “Radio Kids” below.
