Shout Out Louds, are finally back with new new music. Today, the Swedish Indie band have shared their single “As Far Away As Possible.” The band says the track is about “longing to get away from the trappings of everyday life. The track is off their forthcoming release House, available February 18, 2022 release via Bud Fox Recordings/Integral/PIAS.
Once again, Shout Out Louds have worked with producer Björn Yttling (Peter, Björn & John, Franz Ferdinand, Lykke Li) who helmed their sophomore record, Our Ill Wills. Discussing, the band stated, “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. 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’.”
“‘As Far Away As Possible’ had to do with that sensation of being stuck, of longing for a break from the hum-drum of the day-to-day,” noted the band, in regards to the albums’ opening track and lead single. “Maybe a drink, a night out, a simple slip out the back door. Or something more. Anything really. Anything other than this. By dreaming of being as far away as possible, this song shines a light in the expansive darkness.” Feelings most of us can relate to after 18 months of lockdowns, closures, and travel restrictions.
