Your Pop Alternative Source
We Are Serenades, by contrast, are taking a step up to the big leagues, releasing their debut album, Criminal Heaven, on Interscope imprint Cherrytree, home to other mainstream-indie acts such as Robyn, Feist and La Roux. WAS don’t stray too far from the Shout Out Louds’ summery indie pop, though Krunegard provides a lovely harmonic counterpoint to Olenius that serves as the cornerstone of the group’s sound.
Songs like “Come Home” and “Birds” best show off their lilting arrangements and smart accoutrements without overwhelming the songs in sonic filigree, which is just as well because it’s the interplay between Olenius and Krunegard that deserves a place of prominence.
