Since forming in 2009 in Oklahoma City, Red City Radio have proven their punk-rock proficiency, turning in beloved albums (2011â€™s The Dangers of Standing Still and 2013â€™s Titles) and winning over fans around with the world with a sweat-soaked, raved-about live show honed by years of touring along acts like Strung Out, New Found Glory, and Anti-Flag.
But the bandâ€” Garrett Dale, guitarist Ryan Donovan, drummer Dallas Tidwell and bassist Jonathan â€œJojoâ€ Knightâ€”are evolving, both professionally and personally: Red City Radio marks the groupâ€™s first album for Staple Records (after years spent with Paper + Plastick)
The new contrast between Daleâ€™s gruff tenor (now the sole lead voice) and an increasingly rock-based musicality gives Red City Radio an innately fascinating dynamic. As such, songs like the power pop-leaning â€œTwo Out Of Three Ainâ€™t Radâ€ and slow-burning, country-tinged â€œâ€¦ Iâ€™ll Catch A Rideâ€ showcase the bandâ€™s newfound versatility and expand the definition of just what a Red City Radio song canâ€”and shouldâ€”sound like.
