Radiator Hospital -- Play the Songs You Like

“Pastoral Radio Hit” by Radiator Hospital

There’s a very meta theme emerging for Philadelphia power-punk band Radiator Hospital’s forthcoming LP Play The Songs You Like. Its first-released single is a swinging, danceable number called — wait for it — “Dance Number.” The second single and today’s featured track, “Pastoral Radio Hit,” is about trying to get someone out of your head (as if they were a catchy earworm like the song itself).

Radiator Hospital frontman Sam Cook-Parrott’s songwriting is on point in both “Dance Number” and “Pastoral Radio Hit,” so it’ll be interesting to see what he has in store with Play The Songs You Like‘s other 14(!) tracks. The album comes out October 20 via Salinas Records.
