ADAM OLENIUS is the frontleader of SHOUT OUT LOUDS, the beloved Swedish pop-rock band. While the band is currently busy recording a follow-up to 2013’s Optica, the songwriter recored his solo debut. OLENIUS will be releasing an EP titled Looking Forward To The New Me on the 1st of July. Concerning this new project, he pushes forward the need for renewal, without having to intellectualize it.
Songs written at home, in the elevator, on airplanes, in bars and in between soundchecks. No filters, no time to think. Pushed record and started singing. Songs about love, death, alcohol & money. This is the first glimpse of my new direction. My new direction. My new road. My fire lane.
The first track News Are Saying is a sweet song perfect for roadtrips and features vocals from SAY LOU LOU as well. Read our interview with the Swedish band as well before heading on this exciting new solo adventure below.
