On Shout Out Louds’ latest track “Illusions”, we’re given a blissful, icy breath of Swedish indie pop sounds. The song, so dreamy at times that you wonder if it is indeed an “illusion” (sorry, had to go there), features bits of an underlying grooving bass, brawny yet calming vocals, and some airy falsetto work in the chorus. It all comes together nicely — and seamlessly too — and should make getting through the last few days of the week a little easier.

Shout Out Louds new album Optica comes out February 26th via Merge Records.
