Shout Out Louds, Haerts

MATTHEW SINGER
8 pm, Tuesday May 21 | $16.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 

[ICE POP] Shout Out Louds make a particularly Swedish brand of pop, one evoking rays of sunlight trying to pass through a glacier. It's bright and bummed-out at the same time, which isn't a new concept, of course, but the band's brand of catchy melancholia is particularly potent. Instrumentally, latest album Optica leans toward the brighter side of things, with sharp strings and synths and a few odd disco rhythms, but then singer Adam Olenius comes in with his Robert Smith-channeling mopiness and reminds us that the sun just makes you squint. The group is at its best when balancing its twin moods within a single track, and on Optica, it manages a better ratio than its last few efforts.
