Artist: Radiator Hospital
Song: Our Song
Genre: Indie Rock, Pop Punk
Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Radiator Hospital make a rabble-rousing blend of indie rock and pop punk that, like on songs like “Our Song” (off 2013’s Something Wild), feel like a sugar rush on a crack. On said song, the ebullient energy helps cover the dour lyrics about realizing you’re losing the person you love; “No don’t say you love me, when you know you don’t. If you’re thinking that we’re through, I won’t hold it against you.”
The singer’s nasally voice is an acquired taste, but if you enjoy sad songs coated in honey with a guitar crunch, these guys may hit the spot. They are releasing a new album this year, and you can find their old albums on their bandcamp site.
