Radar Eyes encompass a sound that’s familiar, yet revealing, driving neurotic, icy 12-string guitar lines over heavenly blocks of perfectly contained noise and rhythm, bound by a untamed spirit that hovers on the brink of explosion, creating an irresistible tension all but lost in most modern music. As with any band exemplifying great songwriting range, these tracks run effortlessly from surging walls of heavenly guitar noise a la Primal Scream, Warm Jets-era Brian Eno, or The Ponys.

Biography

Blending elements of '60s psychedelic and garage, '70s art rock, and
'80s new wave and post-punk, Radar Eyes crafts a modern noise pop sound
all their own. Guitarist/singers Nathan Luecking and Anthony Cozzi,
along with drummer Shelley Zawadzki, previously of noise punkers Night
of the Hunter, formed the band in Chicago in late 2007 along with
bassist Kenny Rasmussen, previously of No Funeral (though Luecking and
Rasmussen have since left the band, replaced by guitarist Russ
Calderwood and bassist Lucas Sikorski). Their first release, a
self-titled cassette EP, arrived March 2010 for Plustapes, followed
later that year and the next fall, respectively, by a pair of singles on
HoZac. Radar Eyes' self-titled full-length was released on HoZac in
February 2012.  In 2013 they released a tape version of there self titled LP on Happenin' Records and a flexi single "Dreaming of Giants" on Chicago imprint Notes and Bolts.  2014 has them already releasing two 7" singles on Hozac Records and French Label Requiem Por Un Twister and their second LP on HoZac records later this Summer.
