Radiation City’s third album Synesthetica is so sweet you may want some insulin available before you hit play. With melodies like freebasing jolly ranchers and hooks that pour out like syrup from a faucet, Radiation City put out some of the catchiest pop music you’ll hear for a long time. But there’s nothing artificial about the Portland-based indie pop group, their saccharine sound comes off as completely organic and never cheesy.
Check out Radiation City’s Studio 1A session featuring Cameron Spies on guitar and vocals, Lizzy Ellison on synth and vocals, Tyler Verigin on drums, Randy Bemrose on bass and vocals, and Patti King on synth, guitar and vocals.
