New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Interscope Records)
America, we'd like to introduce you to an amazing new band called Serenades. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Serenades are the dynamic duo of Adam Olenius (Shout Out Louds) and Markus Krunegard, two of Sweden's most highly-regarded songwriters. Serenades' debut album will be available next year thanks to Cherrytree Records. In the meantime, however, you can get a very special taste of what's to come via the band's first EP, titled Come Home. Released through all digital service providers and indie retail on November 15th, Come Home is the perfect introduction to a band whose name you'll be hearing throughout 2012.
Singing together at all times to create a seamless, singular "third voice," Serenades create stunning, indie pop bliss on the Come Home EP. A free download of the song "Oceans," which will appear on Come Home, is available now HERE. The track's accompanying video, made up entirely of oceanic stock footage and up now on theserenades.com, echoes the song's vibe of sonic submersion. Woozy, bleached out and full of sunny harmonies, "Oceans
" is the perfect summer throwback to keep you warm throughout winter's chill.
Serenades will also be coming to America
for their first Stateside shows. The band has already played throughout Sweden in a number of ways - sometimes as a duo, sometimes as an eleven-piece - so these shows are already guaranteed to be the stuff of legends.
The dates are:
12/12 - Los Angeles, CA @ Bardot
12/13 - Los Angeles, CA @ Bootleg
12/15 - Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory
12/16 - New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge
