Portland’s Radiation City will release their second full-length album Animals In The Median, May 21, 2013 via Tender Loving Empire. Effortlessly bending genres, the quintet will take audiences on a journey through time as they kick off a national spring US tour.

Radiation City has previously revealed album teaser track “Foreign Bodies” with Rolling Stone. Today we are thrilled to share “Zombies,” a new album cut that dabbles in doo-wop, flawlessly adorned with swinging handclaps and melodies.  Download the“Zombies” MP3 where it premiered with NYLON today or HERE and we encourage you to post & share!

From their use of modern electronic sounds and the restraint of classic bossa records, to the urgency and harmony of northern soul, Radiation City has codified seemingly disparate ideas into a sound and ethos that is at once refreshing and classic. The band has shared stages with Pickwick, Caveman, YACHT, The Walkmen, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more. Be sure to catch the band’s entrancing live show on tour this spring!
