Created in Stockholm by childhood friends Adam Olenius (vocals), Ted Malmros (bass), and Carl von Arbin (guitars), RAISE YOUR VOICE Louds discovered a global audience through the early 2000s making use of their peppy Swedish pop. The lineup started taking form in 2001, with drummer Eric Edman and keyboardist Bebban Stenborg climbing aboard soon thereafter. RAISE YOUR VOICE Louds wasted short amount of time composing songs, the very first three which formed the foundation of their 1st demonstration tape. The music captured the ear of Filip Wilén, owner of Sweden’s Bud Fox Recordings, and he quickly authorized the group to his label. RAISE YOUR VOICE Louds after that spent nearly all 2002 composing more tracks, and December present them saving their debut EP, 100°, that was released in 2003. The group’s high-energy, ultra-melodic sound was set up from the beginning. The music group toured Sweden and Scandinavia to get 100°, whose discharge was accompanied by two singles, “Rush Up Let’s Move” and “Shut Your Eye.” In Oct 2003, the group released its first record, Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, to great acclaim in Sweden. The music group spent the next year touring, launching additional materials (“Please Please Make sure you,” “Extremely Loud/Wish I USED TO BE Dead,” as well as the Oh, Sweetheart EP), and inking an American cope with Capitol Information. The U.S. edition of Howl Howl Gaff Gaff premiered in-may 2005, featuring tracks through the Swedish release and several early singles and EP paths. A tour from the U.S. with indie darlings the Dears helped raise the band’s profile, as do airplay for the OC. Despite such developing achievement, the band’s 2007 record — Our Sick Wills, made by Björn Yttling — was a somber, melancholy affair, replete with icy synths and Cure-inspired vocals. Another circular of tour schedules held the bandmates active until middle-2008, of which stage they made a decision to have a half-year hiatus. March 2009 discovered the music artists reconvening in Stockholm to create new materials, and by August the music group got decamped to Seattle to begin with recording with manufacturer Phil Ek. Their third record, Work, found its way to early 2010. After arriving house from a tour to aid the record, the bandmembers sensed that a modification in the manner they proved helpful was to be able. Hoping to capture the more calm spirit of previously recordings, they spent period outside the studio room composing the tracks, with each bandmember in charge of discovering their very own parts. If they came back jointly, the band created their following record themselves (with help from Johannes Berglund) in a little Stockholm studio room. Optica premiered by Merge in early 2013.
