It's been awhile since we heard from Shout Out Louds. After touring behind their stripped down third album Work, the Swedish quintet took a breather, frontman Adam Olenius concentrating on his side project We are Serenades (alongside Laasko's Markus Krunegård) while the other members scattered across the globe.

Under the Radar SXSW Party Recap: DIIV, Small Black, Poolside, Shout Out Louds and More

March 15th, 2013

I didn’t get to see everything I wanted to at Under the Radar’s seventh annual SXSW party. (Like any good hostess, I found myself often forgoing the entertainment to make sure no one went thirsty.) However, I was able to see a large handful of favorites (old and new) including: DIANABig Black DeltaShout Out LoudsYoung DreamsGold & YouthYoung GalaxyPoolsideDIIVDan Croll, NZCA/LINES, IO Echo, and Small Black.

Shout Out Louds' third album Work was an exercise in businesslike austerity. (Read: nice, but nothing worth sending a company-wide memo about.) Their newest effort sees the Stockholm-based five-piece making up for lost time.

It is interesting to note that my Moleskin notebook's resonance is exactly the same as Shout Out Louds' "Hard Rain." Of course it seems like this tour might be teaching the Shout Out Louds a few things about emotional resonance. While Friday night's crowd reacted politely to their impeccable renditions of middling material from newest album Work, it was really favorites from Our Ill Wills and debut Howl Howl Gaff Gaff that really caused audience-wide oscillations.

On "1999," the opening track of Shout Out Louds' third album, singer/songwriter Adam Olenius sings that he "never felt so alive since 1999." That was two years before Shout Out Louds was formed in Stockholm, Sweden. A decade later, the band found itself in a different place. Literally. More
