A New Personality
Before the mainstream efforts with Shadowland and indie sounds of Further, there was A New Personality. Led by brothers Darren and Brent Rademaker, A New Personality was one of the most important alternative bands in the Tampa area in the early 80’s.
The band mixed the psychedelic gloominess of Echo & the Bunnymen with their own talent for melodic songwriting and came up with a very distinctive New Wave sound characterized by strong melodies and a polished production.
Fans of the Rademakers can easily spot elements of A New Personalityâ€™s music on such records as Furthersâ€™ Next Time West Coast and Frausdotsâ€™ Couture Couture Couture.
