RADAR STATE Reveals "Spinning Wheel"

“This band is about getting back to a time when there was no pressure involved in making music,” explains vocalist and guitarist Jim Suptic, “just friends having a beer or two, hanging out in the garage, and making music that’s really fun to play. That’s the genesis of this band.” RADAR STATE has an impressive indie rock pedigree that includes Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids, The New Amsterdams), Jim Suptic (The Get Up Kids, Blackpool Lights), Adam Phillips (The Architects, The Gadjits), and Josh Berwanger (The Anniversary, Berwanger). It’s unsurprising that their sound is guitar-driven and hook-laden, reminiscent of vintage Lookout Records pop-punk.

Their debut 7” is slated for a September 2017 release. The band just unveiled the inaugural track “Spinning Wheel”. It hits every highlight a music lover could want. Kicking off with a dual guitar attack, the track features Suptic on lead vocals singing about being "lost and lonely", with a palpable sense of yearning. It's emphatically backed as Berwanger and Pryor join in on the chorus. "The hardest part / Is knowing where to start / We're pickin' up the pieces together" are lyrics only too appropriate for these times and can just as easily be heard as a plaintive cry for togetherness in a divisive world as being about a broken relationship. Listen to it here:

RADAR STATE is Matt Pryor (vocals, bass), Jim Suptic (vocals, guitar), Adam Phillips (drums), and Josh Berwanger (vocals, guitar). Their debut 7” will be released September 2017.
