    The Radio Dept. is a pop group originating from Malmö, Sweden. "Going Down Swinging" is a blissful call to action. The band writes: "There are references to church bells in the lyrics, listeners from outside of Sweden might want to know this: In May 2014 and on a couple of occasions since, churches in Sweden have been ringing their bells during nazi marches to warn the public."

    Swedish duo's political outcry against the rise of fascism. The lyrics mention ringing of the church bells, which you can hear in the background as well. The bells were used in Sweden as warning of the Nazis presence.

    "Swedish conceptual pop duo the Radio Dept. can make even the most politically strident subject matter sound laid-back and pretty...the Radio Dept.’s latest endeavor — a new song called “Going Down Swinging” — bounces back as a direct response to the upcoming Swedish national election." https://www.stereogum.com/2012080/the-radio-dept-going-down-swinging/music/
