“High As A Kite” By Shout Out Louds

Swedish indie-rockers Shout Out Louds released their latest single, “High As A Kite.” The track is featured on the band’s upcoming sixth full-length album, House, set to arrive February 18 via Bud Fox Recordings/Integral/[PIAS]. The band will head out on tour across Europe upon their release of House, on February 27, 2022 in Hamburg, Germany.

Discussing the track, guitarist/vocalist Adam Olenius noted, “‘High As A Kite’ is a hazy dream walk down a familiar street. Tripping on self-doubt, the melancholy joy of being alive, and the threshold of that pub where no one knows your name.” Watch + share the lyric video via YouTube.

The band, once again worked with producer Björn Yttling (Peter, Björn & John, Franz Ferdinand, Lykke Li) who helmed their acclaimed 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’.”

Track List

(I’m) High as a kite
Just figured out
How to live my life
One day at a time – every day
I love myself (I love myself)
More than enough
Down at the corner
That’s where you help me
Coming up from my knees
So I pick up my kids
I love them so much
Raising a family
Need to surrender to all of my dreams…
