The Radio Dept. – “Occupied”
After impressing the world with their 2010 album Clinging To A Scheme, free-floating Swedish pop group the Radio Dept. went quiet for four years, only returning last year to release the new one-off track “Death To Fascism” in time for the Swedish elections. Now they’ve got a brand-new three-track EP called Occupied, and its title track is a beautifully rendered seven-minute bittersweet synthpop thumper. The group will reportedly have a new album out sometime this year, and “Occupy” is enough to convince me that it could be pretty great. Listen below.
The Occupied EP is out now on Labrador.
