"We Made The Team" is the new mp3 single by The Radio Dept. The song has been a work in progress since july but the band´s recent visit to London inspired them to finish it and release it immidiately. It's a dreamy skank, high on petrol fumes, scottish lager and cream tea. This autmn the Dept. will start recording their third album in Berlin and various South American cities, such as Lima and Sao Paolo. Stay tuned."


preview the song on the band's myspace site, it is ace.
or buy it from Klicktrack

intriguing lyrics:

We Made The Team

"I Could Tell You Lies
And Spoil The Surprise.
I Could Say We Made The Team
But Who Needs Them Anyway?

Who Needs A Clean Break?

Aslong As We Get Laid
And Paid

I Guess You Could Say
We Made The Team


Aslong As We Get Laid
And Paid

I Guess You Could Say
We Made The Team.."

We're very proud to announce that Track & Field will be releasing the new album by The Radio Dept. in the UK on Oct 23rd.

It’s been two years since the debut album ”Lesser Matters” was released by XL in the UK. And "Pet Grief” is definitely the most anticipated albums to
come out of Sweden in a very, very long time.

"Pet Grief” is a completely different album than the debut ”Lesser Matters” but you’ll hear from the very first chord that you’re listening to The Radio
Dept. The mood is darker, more epic, grander and even more beautiful than ever. ”Pet Grief” is the best songs Pet Shop Boys never wrote. The key to what makes it so special, what makes it all sound so much like The Radio Dept. might be the ever present melancholy that permeates everything they write.

Press for “Lesser Matters”

" The Radio Dept are almost angelic and accessible.' (Time Out)

'...these Swedes re-tweak the formula, sounding, if anything, better than Ride, Slowdive, Lush, Boo Radleys et.al.' (Uncut, 4/5)

'The Radio Dept. are like sonic candyfloss, melting away to leave something delicate and sweet' (Mojo)

'Lesser Matters is surely the most purely satisfying and occasionally heartbreaking indie-pop album of the year.' (The Sunday Times)

'The Radio Dept. are the sort of band who you wish you were in as soon as you hear them.' (NME, Single Of The Week for 'Why Won't You Talk About It?')

'This album is a miniature classic' (NME, 9/10)
