Radio Wars Theme

Album: Radio Wars (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontwoman Juanita Stein explained to the NME January 24, 2009 that this song was inspired by an incident when they were demoing their second album. Said Stein: "We demoed a lot of the album down at this place in Melbourne and the radio kept freaking out and changing stations all the time. You'd put it on one radio station and it'd start flicking to another one. But it came to mean more than that - the radio taking on a technological perspective."
