Sweden's political indie pop darlings The Radio Dept. are back on the scene with their newest single "Swedish Guns."
If you’re familiar with their work, you’ll hear all of the breezy synths, the sweeping guitars and Johan Duncanson’s recognizable vocals. And just like their previous body of work, their new single “Swedish Guns” has this melancholy, sorrowful fervor. The melody at first is calming and relaxing. But the longer you let yourself drown into the song, the more you realize that Duncanson’s lyrics are eerily morose. He repeats the line “Swedish guns” throughout the song making the soothing melodies a dark experience.
The song will be featured on their upcoming album Running Out Of Love. It will be released on October 21, 2016 via Sweden’s Labrador Records.
