Brooklyn Crooner Radiator King Releases Mini Documentary
For years now, Adam Silvestri has been making waves in the Brooklyn music scene, though not the kind you might expect. As Radiator King, Adam’s sound is wholly unexpected, pairing his gravelly croon with punk-y, folk-y arrangements. The thing about Radiator King is that he’s built a captivating persona that highlights both his down-to-earth, heart-forward core of being and his killer musicality.
To celebrate the February release of his latest EP, Roll The Dice, Adam teamed up with Bonobo Studios and SoundEvolution Music for a touching mini documentary that dropped just a few weeks ago. It’s super quick — just two and a half minutes long — but it’s the perfect peek into what motivates Adam, what inspires him, and what enables him to perform his all every night to loyal listeners.
Interspersed between brief, conversational interviews with Adam are shots of him performing, clearly so in his element in those moments in which he gets to howl at the crowd, rock hard, and connect. The documentary is beautifully captured — it’s warm and steady, something genuinely nice to take in with the eyes — and each shot seems to frame an intimate detail that brings us closer to Adam and his music.
Beyond the bits and pieces we hear of Radiator King (love those searing rock riffs) are the bits and pieces we hear from Adam himself, so thoughtful in his explanations. He treats his words carefully in conversation just as he does in his songwriting, so we get a lot of insight that feels as honest as it can get. Though fleeting, Radiator King’s mini documentary is an earnest look at an artist all in on his career because he’s all in on his passion.
