"This Past Week" EP, The Radio Dept

Alex Slawson & Herman Snell

Formerly rooted in the Creation label's pop sounds of the 1980's, Sweden's The Radio Dept have made a bit of a transition on their latest EP. Moving further from the Jesus and Mary Chain influenced wall of distortion on their debut "Lesser Matters," "This Past Week" sees them covering more electro-pop friendly ground with nods towards Saint Etienne, Orange Cake Mix and New Order. An ultra-sweet confection from the label that brought us The Legends, be sure to keep them in mind as they will certainly be making a name for themselves.
