RADAR EYES – “COMMUNITY”
The album’s dark, fuzzy post-punk merged with chiming 12-string guitar pop hooks brings to mind everything from Echo & The Bunnymen, The Ponys, Joy Division, 80s Paisley Underground, The Cure, The Church and more. But it’s the band’s brilliant songcraft that elevates Radiant Remains to a would-be, should-be classic.
Radiant Remains is an excellent jump forward from the band’s fuzzy garage beginnings, and what was originally to serve as Radar Eyes’s swan song now becomes the signal of a striking rebirth with vocalist/guitarist Anthony Cozzi’s recent relocation to Los Angeles in 2016.
Released via new Chicago label Under Road Records, Radiant Remains was engineered by Gregoire Yeche at Electrical Audio and mixed by Adam Stilson. It features an impressive cast of friends filling in on guest spots, including Outer Minds vocalist and organist Mary McKane, saxophonist Bob Johnson, and Touched by Ghoul frontwoman Angela Mullenhour — who performs a brilliantly theatrical, over-the-top duet with Radar Eyes singer Anthony Cozzi on “A Daughter’s Hymn,” the album’s centerpiece and highlight.
Radiant Remains is available on LP, CD and download via Under Road Records.
