Radiant Baby: Firecracker

By Kerry Doole

Radiant Baby - "Firecracker" (Lisbon Lux Records): This project is the brainchild of Montreal electro-pop artist Felix Mongeon, and the recently-released Restless is his first full-length release under this moniker.


"Firecracker" is the second single from the album, and is a sweet treat. A trumpet intro gives way to catchy beats, sax sounds, and Mongeon's smooth and melodic vocals. There's a definite '80s synth-pop vibe here. The track is not a big bang, more of a colourful sparkler and certainly not a damp squib. It is accompanied by a charming video clip featuring scene-stealing pets.

Speaking on the composition and production process of the record, Radiant Baby says in a press release, “I wrote more fleshed-out lyrics and melodies, and decided to strip down a few of the songs while keeping a high level of energy on others. I also wanted to incorporate both acoustic and analogue instrumentation.”

Mongeon has been making a name for himself in the Montreal music scene for the last two years, delivering a flamboyant debut EP, It’s My Party, in 2017.

Radiant Baby has shared the stage with the likes of Peaches, Róisín Murphy, and Yelle. He has also played at POP Montreal, M for Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Fashion & Design Festival and Piknic Électronik. He signed to Lisbon Lux Records (LLR) in 2016.

He has album release shows at  Bar Le Ritz PBD in Montreal tonight (Feb. 22) and The Baby G in Toronto, Feb. 23.
