Shout Out Louds
Very Loud EP

Fresh off of SXSW and on to the upcoming 2005 Coachella Festival, the Shout Out Louds are the latest Swedish import to make their way onto the U.S. indie music scene. A band already hailing success from a handful of EPs and a debut released in the U.K., the Shout Out Louds recently came off tour with the Futureheads and have just released the Very Loud EP, with some help from producer Ronald Bood (Niccokick, Adolphson-Falk).

The Very Loud EP precedes the upcoming re-release of Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, originally released in Scandinavia on Bud Fox Recordings, now arriving in America via Capitol Records. The band complements a large roster of garage pop bands, hailing a style popular to the Hives and The Pixies.

Title track "Very Loud" is actually the very opposite; instead, the single soothes turmoil-stricken souls with its pained verse (and I wanna change/change the way we always had/and to make different plans/and try not to make this sad), though melodic, lacks amplitude. "But Then Again No" and "Wish I Was Dead Pt. 2" recall the whimsical perfection of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream, with the latter track bearing vocals like Isaac Brock's of Modest Mouse.

Overall, the Very Loud EP foreshadows a wonderfully melancholic album, guaranteed to show up in a few 'best of' lists for 2005.
