Guitarist/singers Anthony Cozzi, Nathan Lueking along with drummer Shelley Zawadzki (previously of noise punkers Night of the Hunter) formed Radar Eyes in Chicago in late 2007 along with bassist Kenny Rasmussen, previously of No Funeral (though Luecking and Rasmussen have since left the band, replaced by guitarist Russ Calderwood and bassist Lucas Sikorski). Their self-titled full-length effort, released last year cemented the band’s reputation for a sound that blends 60s psychedelica and garage rock with New Wave and post punk. “Side of the Road” is the latest single and video off the album, and it’s sound bears a resemblance to Joy Division – but it manages to feel anxious and unsettled.
