Be Like The Being by Radnor & Lee
Check out the new track from indie folk-pop duo Radnor & Lee called “Be Like The Being,” the first single from their debut CD, dropping soon.
Radnor & Lee are comprised of Josh Radnor (of “How I Met Your Mother” fame… yes, that’s Ted Mosby singing that song) and indie folk-pop singer, Ben Lee.
A bit more about Radnor & Lee:
“Friends for over a decade with a shared interest in spirituality and philosophy, they had always said they should write a song together. One song turned into ten and Radnor & Lee was born.
After their first live show at Hotel Cafe, a friend described their music as “the intersection of pop and prayer.” Upon hearing this, their producer Ryan Dilmore dubbed them “singer-psalmwriters.” The songs are by turns witty, hopeful, yearning, joyful, searching and meditative.
Ben Lee began his career as a young teenager in the early ’90s, in the Australian lo-fi punk band Noise Addict, who were discovered by taste-making artists Sonic Youth and the Beastie Boys. This began what is now an almost 25-year career of producing intelligent and spiritual indie-pop songs that have soundtracked Ben’s inner life in music.
Josh Radnor is best known as an actor, having played the central character for nine seasons on CBS’s Emmy-nominated comedy How I Met Your Mother. He has written, directed and starred in two feature films, Liberal Arts and HappyThankYouMorePlease, both of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, the latter winning the 2010 Audience Award for Favorite U.S. Drama. Radnor has also worked extensively on and off Broadway.
Radnor & Lee’s debut single “Be Like The Being” is a call back to the present moment, the only place where the human heart can breathe easy. It’s a catchy piece of melodic folk pop that gives us a taste of what their forthcoming full-length is all about.”
