The Radio Dept. release their first new song in four years just in time for the Swedish elections. The title ”Death to Fascism” is probably self-explanatory.
In the words of Yugoslavian partisan freedom fighter Stjepan Filipović “Smrt fasizmu, sloboda narodu” (Death to Fascism, freedom to the people).
Johan Hedberg (ex. Suburban Kids with Biblical Names) returns with an upbeat, indiedisco hit with a touch of Cuba. “Det Fula” is about his love for suburbs others find ugly. Irresistable.
The single is taken from Johan Hedberg’s debut “Paradiset”.
Swedish duo Eternal Death just unleashed their new single “Fade” before its September 30 release date on Labrador Records. “Fade” is the third single of 2014 from Elin Berlin and Johan Angergård, who emerged last fall with the video “Eternal Death”, 4-minutes of total silence and darkness, which created equal amounts of fascination and confusion.
Eternal Death emerged out of the darkness in January of this year with “Head”, with a sound that combines elements of Human League with Burial. The single garnered critical praise from underground outlets such as The Sound Of Confusion, who called the single, “pop music how we wish it was made more often,” to Popjustice, who called it, “vibrant death-disco with sparkling pop melodies behind an electronic wall of sound and a hazy, 21 year-old, Swedish Dolly Parton.” They followed with “Bullet” in May, which caused Under The Radar to state, “Between the razor sharp synths and haunted female vocals, you’re in for a beautifully unsettling experience.”
Of “Fade”, Elin Berlin stated, “With our last single “Bullet” we just wanted to get everything out of us – convey all the emotions, anger, desperation. Get down to the core of Eternal Death. But this time it is different. The deafening noises have subsided; the dark clouds have eased and settled like a heavy fog. “Fade” has that same mysterious, anxious feel like our previous songs, but it’s more burdensome and subtle. It is a song that gropes in darkness and burst into the light, like haze in a dim forest. A given soundtrack for a cold winters day.”
Eternal Death are putting the finishing touches on their debut full-length album, which will arrive on Labrador Records in winter 2015.
