Since releasing their 2015 self-titled album, Saskatoon space-rock dreamers The Radiation Flowers have toured across Canada (with shows from Vancouver to Ottawa, and festival dates at Levitation Vancouver and Sled Island in Calgary), they have recorded and released a split-7” with Swedish band The Orange Revival, and have recorded an EP entitled Summer Loop, set to be released on July 7, 2017.
The band teamed up with Canadian analog label Sunmask and venerable UK label Cardinal Fuzz to get Summer Loop out on vinyl and limited edition CD-R. Continuing with the softly heavy, brightly dark sounds they’ve come to be known for, Summer Loop takes on a noisier, guitar driven edge.
With the departure of their keyboardist after the release of their self-titled album, the full and textured guitar sounds of Shelby Gaudet and Christopher Laramee took an even more prominent role in band’s sound, with drummer Amber Ross and bassist Jay Allen continuing to provide the rhythm and backbeat of the band. New keyboardist Lucas Goetz added some Hammond organ to songs “Just Go Away” and “Walking Down The Street” just in time for the vinyl release of Summer Loop.
The Radiation Flowers continue to work on new material in 2017, with a split-12” with Ontario band Hawkeyes to be released on Sunmask/Cardinal Fuzz on July 7, 2017 as well, with tour dates to follow.
Limited release of 350 on eco-colour vinyl, 50 limited edition vinyl replica jacket CD-Rs.
