Swedish band Shout Out Louds are back with a new single “High As A Kite.”
The track comes from their forthcoming full-length album, House, out February 18th via Bud Fox Recordings/Integral/PIAS. “High As A Kite” is a guitar-driven tune with wavy instrumentals and shimmering synths.
“‘High As A Kite’ is a hazy dream walk down a familiar street,” Shout Out Louds guitarist/vocals Adam Olenius says. “Tripping on self doubt, the melancholy joy of being alive, and the threshold of that pub where no one knows your name.”
Listen to “High As A Kite” below.
House is Shout Out Louds’ most raw, vulnerable album yet. The band once again teamed up with Björn Yttling to record the album.
“When it came time to record these songs, we took them from our small underground rehearsal space to Ingrid Studio in Stockholm, to work once again with our friend Björn Yttling – who is the master of getting rid of anything unnecessary – in pursuit of the sound of the night.”
“We were determined to maintain the raw simplicity we found when writing these songs, that up-close and intimate feeling,” Shout Out Louds add. “Like being at home, safe and warm in a small room with friends. Devoid of multiple layers and illustrious decorations, the songs are what they are – stripped back, honest, and bare. When someone shifts position, you hear it. An exhale? It’s there. Wide-open sounds and an intimately personal perspective meet in this album. And together they create House.”
