Energetic hip-hop duo Radio Radio have always been proud of their Acadian background, paying tribute to their bilingual heritage. More often than not, Gabriel L.B. Malenfant and Jacques Alphonse Doucet record their music in French, with their previous four releases being francophone. Now, Radio Radio have announced their fifth album Light the Sky will be entirely in English – a first for the pair.
Out Februrary 19th, Light the Sky celebrates life, yet poking fun at western culture – leading the way is the first single “Tonight’s the Night”. Fuelled by electro-pop groove, the new track puts funk and dance at the top of the priority list while celebrating all the nightlife has to offer.
Malenfant and Doucet have also announced a cross-Canada tour to support the release. Head to their website for more information and tickets.
