The Explosion

The Explosion has been played on NTS in shows including Awkward Movements, featured first on 12 December 2015. Songs played include Raga 4.

"All we know is what came before/There's no revolution anymore," sings The Explosion, but the chorus isn't a resolution--it's an indictment. Hailing from Boston and referencing influences riding the T, as well as the London tube, this rowdy quintet released its first full-length and an EP through Jade Tree before heading off for the majors. Well schooled in the formula and the expected party line, The Explosion eschews both for a down-to-earth, nobody's hero approach. For quick reference, try "Reactor" or "Terrorist"…
