The Radio Dept. is a dream pop band from Lund, Sweden signed to Labrador Records.
The band was conceived in 1995 by schoolmates Elin Almered and Johan Duncanson, who named the group after a gas-station-turned-radio-repair-shop called "Radioavdelningen" (Swedish for "The Radio Department").
The Radio Dept. are related to such genres as alternative rock, dream pop, indie pop, shoegazing and twee pop, with reviews comparing them to Pet Shop Boys, My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins.
