For 2013's album Optica, the bandmembers took over the production themselves, and while it's not as lively as their debut, the sound is much punchier and sounds more like the logical follow-up to Our Ill Wills than Work does. The songs are stronger too, with more variety and some bouncy tracks to break the gloomy mood the band seemed stuck in previously
Shout Out Louds took their time with these songs, recording for about . years in a small Stockholm studio and producing themselves for the first time with help from Johannes Berglund. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample).
Shout Out Louds pump up their sticky, bittersweet melodies with sleek synths on album No. 4. Anthemic ambition propels every track, whether they look to the dance floor, as in the disco-thumping euphoria of "Illusions" and "14th of July," or the candlelit lounge, with tracks like "Blue Ice," which transposes The National's brooding onto a gentle sea of synths and. strings. Throughout all of the icy electronics, baroque touches lend some necessary warmth, especially the jaunty bursts of flute prancing through "Walking in Your Footsteps.

Frode & Marcus/Courtesy of the artist. Shout Out Louds' new album, Optica, comes out Feb. 26. Frode & Marcus/Courtesy of the artist. Particularly in its first half, Optica (out Feb. 26) plays like a marvelous '80s mixtape, albeit one with modern production values and a good deal of subtlety. The references aren't all pop, either - the album-opening "Sugar" sounds like The Cure's Robert Smith stepping in to lead The Smiths - but the results, in all their sweet and sunny glory, invariably chime and shine.
Producer – Johannes Berglund, Shout Out Louds. Words By – Adam Olenius, Bebban Stenborg.
