Swedish band The Radio Dept. hit the indie pop scene in 2003. The band’s latest release Clinging to a Scheme provides that washed over, benzodiazepine-infused, contented haze. Reminiscent of Spiritualized and The Beautiful South, the band combines intriguing compositions and hypnotic vocals for an engulfing, atmospheric feeling. A dreamy and soothing collection. This band is so cool that Sofia Coppola used three tracks from The Radio Dept. on the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. Guaranteed to be played on repeat, Clinging to a Scheme proves to be truly addicting.
