The Radio Dept. have been quiet since the release of 2010’s masterful Clinging To A Scheme, but they’ve just released their first new song in over four years. “Death To Fascism” comes right before the Swedish band’s local elections and the title, of course, carries some heavy political weight. It’s a chopped and screwed electronic track that only repeats a single vocal sample: “Smrt fasizmu, sloboda narodu,” a quote from Yugoslavian political figure Stjepan Filipović, which means “Death to fascism, freedom to the people.” Listen below.
No word on whether “Death To Fascism” is a one-off track or will lead up to a new release.
