WE SHOW UP ON RADAR
“Let it be known, the We Show Up On Radar album is a thing of beauty”
- Huw Stephens
We Show Up On RadaR is multi-instrumentalist and producer Andy Wright, his vivid imagination, and the greatest anthropomorphic folk tales seen since the Brothers Grimm put down their quills. In equal parts the optimism and sheer joy of the Flaming Lips; the despair and futility of Daniel Johnston; the storytelling of Colin Meloy; and the wide-eyed imagination of a child who has stared right through the looking glass.
Mountain Top and A Spider On A Thread were We Show Up On RadaR’s first release on Hello Thor Records. The former a triumphant tale of love conquering all, and cycling; the latter a spider’s call to surrender your life to fate, helped along by a borrowed lyric and Amanda Applewood from The Boy Least Likely To.
Are you sitting comfortably? We Show Up On RadaR has something very special to share with you. He has wonder, heartache, surrealism and sweet, magical pop music. He has beautiful, uplifting nursery rhymes for grown-ups.
When not inhabiting the world created in his songs, Andrew was, until recently, a member of Nottingham’s finest ambient, post-rock melodists Swimming. He has also taken the helm as producer on records by Hello Thor’s favourite band Fists.
Mountain Top / A Spider On A Thread is available now on limited edition pink vinyl 7" and mp3 download - from this very website, good independent record shops and all digital download sites.

“…listening to this single induces a mild euphoria, encouraging you to realise that everything is actually pretty ok really. It’s the perfect soundtrack to dozing off a few double whiskies, lying on a sun soaked hillside with a gentle breeze cooling your face.” www.artrocker.com
“…an incurably cutely snoozing twinklesome treat replete with breathlessly hushed vocals, kooky keyboard chimes, children’s toy instruments, slyly fragile west coast effervesces and softly coated sugar-rushed harmonies…” www.losingtoday.com
