The Radio Dept. – Heaven’s on fire (song)The Radio Dept. – Heaven’s on fire (песня)

The Radio Dept. with each release… not stay the same… not get better… But – stay very likable, and among the all-time favorites. With their warmth, plush and a bit of raggedness. These Swedes complete the line of simple joys: staring out of the window, holding a cup of hot tea. Heaven’s On Fire is an airy song, holding onto the thin piano threads, with shoegaze-shabby sound, not so easy to understand lyrics.

It seems like everyone you know is on your side – constantly moving against the tide

And the beginning sounds quite socially active: “People see rock’n’roll as youth culture. When youth culture becomes monopolized by big business, what are the youth to do? Do you have any idea? I think we should destroy the bogus copious process that is destroying youth culture.”

This is the music that pretends to be written by a friend of yours, when you listen to it for the first time, it seems that you’ve known it for a long long while.

Waiting for the album, Clinging To A Scheme, due out in April 2010.

The Radio Dept. – Heaven’s On Fire mp3The Radio Dept. с каждым релизом… нет, не то чтобы становятся лучше… не то чтобы не меняются. Но – продолжают нравиться. Теплом, плюшевостью, шероховатостью. Это красота простых вещей: смотреть в окно, держать в руках чашку горячего чая – с подобными атрибутами шведы всегда уместны. Heaven’s On Fire – воздушный трек, покачивающийся на тонких нитях клавишных, с по-шугейзовски затертым звуком, не до конца расслушиваемым вокалом.

It seems like everyone you know is on your side – constantly moving against the tide

А начало – еще и социальный призыв:
“People see rock’n’roll as youth culture. When youth culture becomes monopolized by big business, what are the youth to do? Do you have any idea? I think we should destroy the bogus copious process that is destroying youth culture.”

Музыка, которая как будто написана твоим старым знакомым, которую ты слушаешь в первый раз так, будто уже слышал многократно.

Альбом Clinging To A Scheme выйдет в апреле этого года.
