The Radicant Ascends

Former Anathema frontman Vincent Cavanagh has announced his new project The Radicant, with a debut EP, We Ascend, due on 12th July through Kscope as well as a new single ‘Zero Blue’.

The Radicant embodies Cavanagh’s artistic philosophy. Inspired by a term used in botany and by art curator Nicolas Bourriaud, radicant describes organisms that create their roots gradually as they advance, allowing species to mobilise, adapt, and grow on any surface.

The EP’s polished production is owed to the close collaborative relationship between Cavanagh and critically acclaimed French producer Ténèbre. Mastering by Sam John at Precise Mastering is said to add to the immersive experience, evoking vivid imagery and serving as an ideal accompaniment to the visual creations anticipated in a live performance setting. 

The influences of The Radicant’s We Ascend EPare said to span a wide sonic spectrum, from  propulsive drum and bass rhythms on lead single ‘Zero Blue’ to the cinematic electronica of the EP’s title track. The EP will be available on classic black 12” vinyl and available here.

I’ve waited for this day for a long time. After years of composing with (and for) visual artists, I’m excited to release my own music as The Radicant. Big love to the Kscope fam and everyone involved,” said Cavanagh.

 Currently, Vincent Cavanagh is in the studio working on his debut album as The Radicant, that’s set for release next year. He is also collaborating on Homecoming, an interactive mixed-reality installation and dance performance with Georgia Tegou and visual artist Kristina Pulejkova, set to debut in selected theatres in 2025. 

‘Zero Blue’ is available here and you can check out the video here at RAMzine.
