Beginning with a sample (bonus points if you can pinpoint that voice) and leading into The Radio Dept.‘s now signature eletro-pop meets fuzzed out, jangle-worthy synth lines, “Heaven’s On Fire” promises great things for the band’s forthcoming record Clinging To A Scheme. It carries on precisely where the band headed post the release of their second LP, Pet Grief; songs like singles “Freddie And The Trojan Horse” and “David”.
Like these songs, “Heaven’s On Fire” drops in hints of post-punk (of the more minimal assortment) and capitalizes on the aptitude for blending seemingly countless genres for a sound quite unique and always burning with genius. The song is the latest single to be released by Labrador Records; it comes out March 24 and features a Sade cover (“All About Our Love”). On April 21, a mere month after the single drops, Labrador will release Clinging To A Scheme.
