Radiation City Debut New Single + Remix for “Babies”

  Perform West Coast Dates, Return to the Studio for New LP
“The emergence of Radiation City could be inspiring – or fairly frightening – for a host of electronic-, retro-garage-, chamber-, and just plain “dream-pop” manufacturers. ‘Cause it’s just raised the bar  
                                                                            a lot higher.” – My Old Kentucky Blog 
“one of the year’s more charming debuts which drifts between moody, organ-driven numbers and more upbeat pop.” – BrooklynVegan

Portland-based dream-pop group Radiation City will embark on a new set of West coast tour dates next week, performing down the coast of California and heading back up to Portland. The band has debuted a new single “Babies” as well as it’s remix from Portland-based artist PoPoPePe, both available for free mp3 download at SoundCloud. Wrapping up a successful two-week recording session at their Trout Lake, Washington mountain cabin, the band will continue to work on their sophomore full-length set for a 2012 release.

“Babies” is the third single from the group’s lauded full-length debut, The Hands That Take Youavailable now through Tender Loving Empire (Typhoon, Loch Lomond). Originally out via cassette on Radiation City founders Cameron Spies and Lizzy Ellison’s cassette-only record label Apes Tapes, the album has been lauded by MTV, ELLE, Paste, FuseTV, Prefix, and The L Magazine among others, with NYLON saying, “Their dreamy, faraway sound reminds us of a sunshiny marriage between Reading Rainbow and the Dum Dum Girls…Either way, let’s just say it’s really good.” The band recently released a new sampler Mixed Ape 3with Apes Tapes and will perform a special Portland NYE’s set covering OutKast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” album in it’s entirety.
