A throwback to a much loved era.

Label: Labrador Records
Released: October 21st 2016
Rating: ★★★

The new effort from Sweden’s The Radio Dept., ‘Running Out Of Love’ is filled with sweeping electronic sounds, determined beats and emotive vocals that complement the arrangements perfectly. Creating soundscapes that encapsulate the genre that saw the 90s weird kids given an outlet, the magic lies in the intricacy of what they compose.

‘Thieves Of State’ uses samples to fuel the atmosphere; the pounding beat found in ‘Occupied’ is reminiscent of New Order; the title-track offers an instrumental moment, setting the framework for finale ‘Teach Me To Forget’ which builds and swirls to its climactic ending. There’s even a spot of Britpop within ‘Committed To The Cause’.

‘Running Out Of Love’ is a throwback to a much loved era. Steven Loftin
