Stream It From The Mountain: Radar State – Strays

Out now on Wiretap Records is Strays, the highly-anticipated debut album from Radar State.  Radar State is the Kansas-based punk band comprised of Matt Pryor and Jim Suptic of the Get Up Kids, Josh Berwanger of The Anniversary and Adam Phillips of The Gadjits and The Architects.  The combination of their talents results in an energetic punk-fuelled power-pop sound that feels both nostalgic and modern.  One of the most intriguing aspects of the album is that songwriters Matt, Jim and Josh each take turns at the microphone and lend background melodies to the each other’s songs.
Standout tracks include the sarcastic and speedy Pryor-led “Self Hurt Guru”, the infectiously catchy power-pop of the Berwanger-led “Artificial Love”, the statement-making title track and the first single, “Anywhere” with its anthemic sing-along chorus.
The band members of Radar State bring an impressive punk pedigree, with roots in the late 90’s emo and punk scenes but they don’t consider the band a side project of even a “supergroup”.  They are just having fun and it shows on their impressive debut!
Also, be sure to check them out on tour later this month.
