Hot Dance Mess from Shout Out Louds
I’ve been waiting for Shout Out Louds to replicate the deliciousness that was 100 Percent from their first LP, and I think this new track, Illusions, might just be that perfect step. It combines the element of indie dance music with the group’s current musical warmth, due mostly to the soft spoken female backing vocals. You can listen to this song and not feel a bit of personal exuberance; you better be tapping your toes or spinning about at your cubicle/bedroom. This tune has me thoroughly excited for the band’s new album, Optica, which comes out on February 27th via Merge.
