Track Of The Day :: The Radio Dept. - Swedish Guns
Words: Ellie Ward
Swedish indie-pop duo The Radio Dept. return after a six-year hiatus away with both news of a fourth album, 'Running Out Of Love' (their first since 2010's 'Clinging To A Scheme') in the offing - and an early foretaste in the shape of 'Swedish Guns'.
The synth-pop track - out on October 21 through Labrador Records, the same day as the full-length itself - takes a lyrical swipe at the rising arms industry in their home country, while Johan Duncanson and Martin Carlberg deliver electronic darkwave beats reminiscent of the 80s with hypnotic synths and Duncanson’s smoothly defined vocals.
