CRITIC REVIEWS

Despite having been together, in one incarnation or another, since the mid-'90s, this - surprisingly - is only the third album proper by the well-respected outfit from Lund, The Radio Dept.

The current and established line-up is founder member Johan Duncanson on guitar and vocals, longtime collaborator Martin Carlberg on guitar and Daniel Tjäder on keyboards. With it currently being something of a musical

and critical golden age for all things Swedish, these veterans would seem well-placed to reassert their prominence among their compatriots.

Destined to be one of the most underrated gems of its time. Delightful blend of indie pop and shoegaze.

A cute sound but the song writing just can’t sustain a full album of that one same tone - it all ends up nicely ‘exploring an unknown city in the rain’ atmospheric, but at the final reckoning, a bit run-of-the-mill.

Great blend of electronic and shoegaze elements. Might need some extra listens to fully digest it.

This album is just so insanely feel-good.
