Shout Out Louds

Shout Out Louds - Work

Work was recorded in Seattle and produced by Phil Ek (The Shins, Fleet Foxes). After a year of touring behind the acclaimed, Our Ill Wills, the band went their separate ways -- singer/main songwriter Adam Olenius to Melbourne, Australia, keyboard/vocalist Bebban Stenborg to Los Angeles, drummer Eric Edman, bassist Ted Malmros and guitarist Carl von Arbin back to Stockholm -- and took a much needed break. Olenius wrote many of the new songs in Australia in a tiny room, with a little synthesizer, an acoustic guitar and garageband on his laptop. He passed them on to the others who listened closely from their corners of the world, questioning and challenging him until the songs that make up Work had all passed the test.

For the songs on Work, the band stripped their sound down, lost the percussionist and string section and kept things organic, unadorned and to the point.
