Radiophonic creates alternative rock that marries pop sensibilities with innovative musical leaps, with notes of The Flaming Lips, Explosions in the Sky, Jeff Buckley and Afghan Wigs.


Radiophonic (formerly 3 Shot West) writes passionate music that marries pop sensibilities with uncommon musicality. Their music combines ethereal melodies that ride and attack with a rhythmic drive and a concise eye for arrangement. The band's influences include The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Explosions in the Sky, Jeff Buckley, Afghan Wigs, Trail of Dead, and Muse.

Members of Radiophonic have performed all over the U.S., including Dallas, Austin, New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles. They have shared stages with acts such as Paula Cole, Francis Dunnery, Deadman and Bob Schneider. As the band 3 Shot West, they were mainstays in the Dallas music scene during 1999-2001, performing in such venues as the Liquid Lounge, Galaxy, Curtain Club, Trees and the Gypsy Tea Room. In 2000, members appeared on the PBS syndicated television show Texas Music Café and were featured at the Angel Citi Music Festival in Los Angeles. Music from their debut album, “Radiophonic,” was licensed to Bunim-Murray Productions and was subsequently featured in MTV’s “The Real World” 2000 season.

In 2005, they reformed as Radiophonic (taking the name of their debut record in 2000), adding bassist Daniel Loyd of Los Angeles, CA. They signed with the Dallas-based, independent label Soona Songs in 2006. Radiophonic’s debut album, “I Could Have Been A Rocket Scientist”, was released Halloween 2010.
