Video: Radiation City - "Babies"

Portland's Radiation City first caught my attention back in June with the excellent single "The Color of Industry," which I called "a Fruit Stripe-caliber stick of variegated pop bubblegum that absolutely bursts with flavor in its nods to lush Phil Spector production and girl-group harmonies." Though nothing else in the band's debut The Hands That Takes You hits as immediately as "The Color of Industry," there are plenty more richly rewarding pop moments, including the beautiful slow-burner "Construction" and the steady build of analog buzz on album standout "Babies." Last spring, after a breakfast of fried chicken and waffles, Portland videographers Into The Woods captured a beautiful live rendition of "Babies" in the band's home. Check it out after the jump.
