Montreal-based electro-pop artist Radiant Baby shares his debut album, Restless, out on all streaming platforms and available on vinyl via Lisbon Lux Records. Northern Transmissions streamed the record in advance of recent live dates in Canada and NYC.
Felix Mongeon, aka Radiant Baby has been making a name for himself in the Montreal music scene for the last two years. Since his early beginnings, his rich and festive electro-pop productions have won over fans and media alike. Following his flamboyant debut EP It’s My Party in 2017, Radiant Baby starts afresh with his first full length, due out in February 2019. For his upcoming LP, he merges crisp electronic sounds with raw IRL instrumentation, conveying a more mature and dynamic aesthetic. To convey this new direction, Radiant Baby is currently developing a new live show with a full band.
R.B. has shared the stage with world-renowned artists, such as Peaches, Kali Uchis, Róisín Murphy, and Yelle. He has also played at POP Montreal, M for Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Fashion & Design Festival and Piknic Électronik. Radiant Baby signed to Lisbon Lux Records (LLR) in 2016.
“Tight melodies and effervescently pleasant instrumentation, paired with dynamic lyricism and a compelling visual aesthetic, have made Felix Mongeon's electro-pop a sensation.”

“Speaking about the track, Mongeon explains, "“Firecracker” is a sweet and naïve classic love song, with a nostalgic and vulnerable feel. I wrote a first instrumental version about four years ago. At the time, I was just learning music production. ”

His music is lush, mixing the organic and synthetic, and had a lot of help from Le Couleur’s powerhouse drummer Steeven Chouinard. But the star is the well-constructed songs and he’s got a voice, sounding a little like Lloyd Cole, that works great with music like this.
