Swedish trio The Radio Dept. are apparently not ones for shying away from their left-wing socialist leanings so it was probably no surprise in their native land they decided to take aim at Sweden’s conservative government in the run up to last weeks general elections (they dropped seats in case you’re interested but worryingly the far right unfortunately gained some ground).
This one’s been on repeat for weeks, I only realized it had evaded making a worthy appearance on the blog today. Bluntly put ‘The New Improved Hypocrisy’ is warm, fuzzy and instantly likable shoegazey indie with intelligent and insightful lyrics, nuf said.
Unbeknown to me these guys have been around for quite sometime so it might be a smart move to track down some of their back catalogue.
Enjoy your weekend.
