Portrait of Radioactive X Girlfriend

About Radioactive X Girlfriend

Snohomish, WA

For many decades now the Pacific Northwest has been a fresh source of innovative boundary-pushing music, and since 2010 Seattle native and musical veteran, John Morgan Reilly, has been continuing that tradition with his eccentric brand of songwriting with his band, Radioactive X Girlfriend. Although the band's sound is perched nicely on the darker limbs of the Electro-Folk genre, its current flight pattern can soundly be traced upwind to their 2011 full-length alternative rock debut, The Art of Splitting (Orange Allies). The current lineup features both Jol'e Williams (So A.D.D.) and John Morgan Reilly on vocals, with supporting musical contributions by prolific (and bearded) co-producer Jonathan Plum, as well as Davey Brozowski (Catheters, Tall Birds, Black Whales), Jessika Kitzman (Seeing Blind), Bill Ibsen (Remission), and Philana Goodrich. The band’s second full length release, All Blade No Handle, steers toward the moodier moments from The Art of Splitting (ie: Resurrection, Fade Into Forever, Comb Over, Hold You) and showcases some haunting candlelit storytelling similar in feel to that of Leonard Cohen, Mark Lanegan, or even Nick Cave. And rather than duplicating the aggressive and quirky riffs that grace their debut effort, All Blade No Handle builds itself gracefully around the unique musical dialogue between John and Jol'e.
