With four full-length albums and hundreds of shows under their belt, Radio Radio returns with Light the Sky, set to be released on February 19th, 2016 via Bonsound. Having grown up in an environment where Anglophones rub shoulders with Francophones on a daily basis, the Acadian duo now offers their first album entirely in English.
Stream and share the first single, Tonight’s The Night, via YouTube.
Gabriel L.B. Malenfant and Jacques Alphonse Doucet celebrate life with their music. The energy is palpable in this joyful album full of rhythms and hip-hop/electro melodies created by Shash’U (Fool’s Gold Records), DJ Champion, J.u.D. and Alex McMahon (who also produced the album).
Radio Radio’s fifth album once again travels across unique, but familiar, worlds. Songs like Busy and Happy Hustler reference life in the fast lane, while Sweater Weather delves into relationship complexities and Remodel (Mike Holmes) mockingly pays homage to home renovations, a common reality for some in their mid-thirties.
This collection of songs depicts, often satirically, various Western symbols and celebrates our commonalities. Dancing, always a sacred act for Radio Radio, is revered especially in Solo Dance Party, to which American singer Leaf (Fool’s Gold Records) lends her voice.
Over the past few years, Radio Radio has become a must-see act, proving themselves to be dangerously powerful time and time again. The album will launch officially during the Montreal High Lights Festival on Monday, February 22nd at Club Soda. (Tickets) The duo and their two musicians (Steve Caron and Kim Ho) will play shows across Quebec in February before visiting Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia in March.
