Radiation City Dip Into Doo Wop On 'Zombie'

Portland-based quintet Radiation City have piqued interest and ear canals with their distinct mix of modern electronic sounds with rhythms that recall the evocative, melancholy feel of 50″s pop.

These seemingly disparate worlds come together on their latest single  ”Zombie.” The track combines the wistful melodies and harmonies of classic doo wop–along with a touch of bossa nova-style drums and flanger guitar–   with surreal electro effects. The end result sounds both familiar and disarmingly new.  Listen to “Zombie” here.

Radiation City”s sophomore album Animals In the Median comes out May 21.
