Canadian trio Operators return with their highly-anticipated sophomore release Radiant Dawn, their first new music since the 2016 debut LP Blue Wave. (Frontman Dan Boeckner has kept busy with Wolf Parade’s fourth studio album Cry Cry Cry in 2017.)

With today's featured track, Boeckner describes a bleak existence against an epic, relentless Krautrock beat. "The future looks the same again / We’re stuck down here upon the endless wheel," he barks against the '80s-inspired electropop chords. 

Operators play Neumos in Seattle on Sunday, June 9th, and will be LIVE on KEXP the next day at noon PST. That session is open to the public to watch from the Viewing Space. Info on attending here. And stay tuned to the KEXP website for an interview with the band to be online soon.
