Adam Olenius - Looking Forward To The New Me
Adam Olenius is familiar to astute indie pop fans as the lead singer and songwriter for Swedish favorites Shout Out Louds. While the band still exists, and expects to release a new album next year, Adam has also been working on his own material, leading to the recent release of his debut solo EP, the appropriately-named Looking Forward To The New Me. Apparently he has worked on the songs over the last several years as time, and inspiration, allowed. The resulting five songs are intimate musings that also manage to be razor sharp pop music. Opener "New Are Saying" is the most up-tempo, but Adam is equally adept at drawing in the listener with more reflective tunes, such as "Birthday (Kill For That Jacket)". Both are embedded below, and you can stream all five at the Soundcloud link below.
