First came across this band when returning in form a night out. Was feeling a bit merry and decided to watch a bit of TV. Half asleep and in a bit of a daze, I was roused by the sounds of lush Scandinavian guitar pop. I managed to grab a pen and scrawl down the name of the band. The Radio Dept. Next day I was on Amazon looking for an album.
I was not disappointed with my purchase. Like a lot of bands coming from that part of the world at the moment, everything has a bit of a fuzzy, 'Wall of Sound' vibe to it. They have a sound that mixes the Ravonetts' feed back induced, shoe gazing riffs with Concretes' style musicianship, and upbeat and happy Wannadies, vocals.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a quality album. The kind of music you're not going to get sick of after four or five listens. It's been on my CD player since I got it and sounds a bit different every time I spin it. Well worth the investment.
