It’s only been a year since we last heard from Swedish indie-poppers Shout Out Louds, but that’s plenty of time for the band’s songwriter Adam Olenius to craft an entire album with fellow countryman and singer-songwriter Markus Krunegård. The duo, known as Serenades, will release a studio full-length soon, but they’re whetting appetites with a new lush EP, titled Come Home, first.
On Come Home, the pair fuse indie pop with a grander musical vision, as strings and drums lend Serenades’ songs the same big sound that you might find in other similar bands like Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, and Band of Horses.
The EP is due November 21, but you can hear it a week early, exclusively on Rdio. Listen to the Come Home EP now.
