After a long wait, Swedish indie-pop outfit The Radio Dept. have returned with a new three-track EP called “Occupied”, which follows last year’s one-off track “Death To Fascism”. The EPs title track, a seven-minute dance-friendly pop tune, finds the band in such fine form. “Occupied” is the first single from their forthcoming long-awaited fourth album, the follow-up to 2010’s “Clinging To A Scheme” LP, which is expected to see a release later this year. Blast it above.
The “Occupied” EP is out now in both vinyl and digital formats on Labrador. Get it here.

“Never Follow Suit” is our favorite track from ‘Clinging to a Scheme’, the upcoming third album by The Radio Dept. The band (named after a gas-station-turned-radio-repair-shop called “Radioavdelningen”) captures stiff synth beats, mixed with beautiful guitar melodies and synth keyboards wrapped up in its low-fi glory. Feels good. We always follow The Radio Dept…
