Is it just me, or is there a new trend developing, everything Scandinavia?  If not, why not?  It started with the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy, moving to the international best seller The Hypnotist-soon to be a movie, a newly owned hotel in the Hamptons by Swedish hotelier Jenny Ljungberg, (Encore will be covering), the new restaurant Smörgås Chef and now, this new smoking hot band the 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 , 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, (see inset).  The track’s accompanying video, made up entirely of oceanic stock footage 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.

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. Not to be missed! Win tickets to see The Serenades- Here!
