Watch: Radiation City

Radiation City describes their sound as "bossanova" meets 90s influences (like grunge), and it's an apt label-- this sound is different, and unique. It's been a while since we've we heard a band so successfully emulate the sound of obscure 60s pop. You'd have to start digging through your parents' record collection to find something similar, and even then, you'd have to apply a modern tint. If that genre combination makes you as excited as it did us, Radiation City are certainly worth your time. The band's clever build and release creates a tense and dynamic progression with an emphasis on the build so that the pay-offs are that much sweeter. There are some undertones of modern rock elements bubbling below the surface, but this is vintage and sorely-missed pop at its core. There won't be an actual album til this summer, but every leak of information from this talented crew makes us just a little more excited.
