What’s six years here and there? Long waits are part and parcel with being a fan of The Radio Dept., Malmö, Sweden’s long running indie-/dream-pop duo. Marking their first return to Los Angeles in nearly six years, supporting Running Out of Love, their first new record in – you guessed it – six years, the duo, comprised of Johan Duncanson and Martin Larsson, played the Fonda Theater Friday night, delivering a thoroughly enjoyable set of their brand of dancey, melancholy pop. The sold out show, upgraded from the El Rey Theater to the larger Fonda due to ticket demand, was their largest in town to date, a testament to the organic growth of their fan base–largely a diverse set of indie kids, with the usual curious bro elements beginning to creep in at the fringes.
