Shock Radar New Single Preview
Shock Radar is set to release a new single tomorrow (1-31-2012). The single is titled “Live Like Lions” and is from the upcoming EP Gimme Stoner Rock! due out this March. The Soda Shop has the premier before it’s available for purchase tomorrow.
“Live like Lions” is a return to roots for Shock Radar’s new single of
the year. Like Neil Young’s ‘Rust’ period, the sound captured on tape
is pure unadulterated Rock and Roll. It was recorded at the infamous
all-analog studio- Emandee, and features unique guitar texturing by
Ink & Dagger’s Don Devore. The song is about finding your own path to
enlightenment while living each moment like it’s your last.
Shock Radar is the experimental art rock project of NY songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and painter Lee J Diamond. He has worked as a session musician for members of The Verve, Stabbing Westward, Small Black and The Slits. After touring and recording for acts like The Feud, Aerial Love Feed/Rockethouse, and Blood City, he is now giving life to his own material as a singer and composer.
The eccentric artistic styling of Shock Radar’s ‘Post-Pop’ songs are fresh and unique. Born and raised in NY where he worked at several record stores till attending Boston’s Berklee College of Music on scholarship, and further studying art and journalism at New School University, Lee J Diamond has climbed his way to the top of the city’s music scene, simply doing what he does best, mixing and playing all styles from around the world.
His live band plays frequently around Manhattan, or you can follow his musical endeavors via 27 Productions.
