Apart from the overt and deceptively good stand alone track ‘Death To Facism’ released in September last year to coincide with the Swedish elections, we’ve heard nothing at all from the economical and enigmatic electronic shoegazers, The Radio Dept. since their brilliiant 2010 album, Clinging To A Scheme. That’s now changed with the release of an outstanding new seven minute new single, ‘Occupied’, one that explores new sonic directions, and veers into half motorik/half dance territory. It’s part of a three track EP that includes another new track and a renamed remix of the original by Liminal. Grab it on limited edition vinyl here. There are murmurs around that a new album will surface later this year. With their track record on release dates though, we’ll all just bide our time whenever it happens. ‘Occupied’ will be more than enough to tide us over. Thank fuck they’re back!
