Lizzy Ellison, Cameron Spies, Matt Rafferty and Randy Bemrose make up Portland foursome Radiation City. A group of genre-bending maestros, Radiation City marry together the dreaminess of indie-pop and the fog of lo-fi with just a hint of ‘60s doo-wop. As these different tones blend into one song, as here with “Park,” the result is a hazy, soulful, yet rousing sing-along, starring Spies’ edgy yelps and Ellison’s background crooning. Their music’s contrasting elements are refreshing and imaginative, and the fact that they all come together smoothly, make it immediately memorable.
