Dan Boeckner has been around for the last two decades in the music scenario – first as one of Wolf Parade’s primary songwriters, then as leader of the Handsome Furs, with Britt Daniel in Divine Fits and finally now as the frontman of Operators.
Operators’ latest album Radiant Dawn is a dystopian concept album with recurring lyrical references and brief instrumental interludes. Released this May on Last Gang Records, Radiant Dawn bursts with confidence. It reflects an artist who has already proven himself and is now trying out new sounds and ideas. Overall, a very enjoyable album with tracks like “I Feel Emotion” and “Faithless” that deserve special mention.
