New Releases

College Radio are making waves with new single ‘Survival Guide’

It’s a jungle out there so tune in as these Seattle punks offer a rollicking solution to a grinding work day

Hailing from the Gloomy Emerald City of Seattle, College Radio have made a name for themselves with catchy choruses, hard-charging drums, and soaring harmonies. They combine classic old-school pop-punk with an unexpected alternative twist while making songs that are fresh, but instantly familiar. With the release of their new EP, ‘I Used To Get Messed Up‘ on Third String Records, College Radio have proven themselves to be one of the premier punk acts of the Pacific North West.

This marks the bands’ first release of 2022 following a slew of singles throughout last year and the bands’ first EP, ‘I Used to Get Messed Up‘, in late 2020. ‘Survival Guide‘ has a familiar pop-punk sound that will instantly feel like home to fans of the genre, but with a unique vocal edge and distinct lyrical style.

“‘Survival Guide‘ is a step-by-step instructional guide for making it through another horrible day of work, by way of a bouncy riff and a catchy hook,” says Evan, the band’s bassist and co-vocalist. “We put Green Day, Motion City Soundtrack, and Weezer in a blender, added a pinch of anxiety, and this is what we came up with.”

Along with the single, the band has released a music video for the song. “The video highlights some of the almost Kafka-esque dehumanisation that’s become par for the course in retail work,” says Evan. “It can be hard to make existential nihilism seem fun, but I think we nailed it with this one.”

College Radio is:
Gordon – Vocals/Guitars, Evan – Vocals/Bass, Mike – Drums, Melvin – Lead Guitar/Vocals
