Radio Way


Radio%20WayQuantcast


In order to further your craft, it is often necessary to re-examine your roots. The Northwest New Wave trio Radio Way from Portland, OR has done just that, drawing on a continuum of synth-based influences that extends from New Order, through Joy Electric, to the The Faint and The Bravery. So it should come as no surprise that driving beats and screaming synths form the foundation of their music, or that the title track of their newly released debut EP, Just Like the 80’s, also doubles as their motto.

As a newly formed band, Radio Way has made their short history count. David Eldridge (synth/programming), Phillip Wetmore (guitar), and Colby Judah (vocals), all high school friends from The Dalles, OR, formed the group shortly after graduating in 2007. Seeking to create high-energy dance music by mixing post-punk ideologies with classic pop structure, the band immediately set to work honing their skills and producing demos.

2008 brought numerous shows around the Pacific Northwest, a tour to California, and an appearance at a large local festival. Fans and audiences who attended their shows compared their sound to groups like Joy Division and Depeche Mode. The year culminated with the signing of a record contract with Northwest synth label HiCap Records in October. When Ronnie Martin agreed to mix their debut release, Just Like the 80s, it was a major coup for the band. Longtime fans of Ronnie’s band, Joy Electric, the members of Radio Way were ecstatic and felt privileged to work with such a prominent figure in the electronic music scene so early in their career, especially one that held such a huge influence on their music. Ronnie’s mix provided the perfect sonic image for the band’s tracks, evoking memories of the smoke-filled neon-lit clubs of decades past. Just Like the 80s was released by HiCap Records on January 31, 2009.

Now, still under two years from their inception, having released a new album, and even producing a music video to promote it, Radio Way continues to work at electrifying the West Coast with their new wave of New Wave. As observed by Terran Scully of the Clark College Independent, “Eventually everyone gets into the groove.”
