Along with Volvos and tennis players, adorable folk pop is now among Sweden's most succesful exports. Shout Out Louds join Jens Lekman, Loney, Dear and Peter Bjorn and John as the best of a crop of young Swedish acts with a gift for melody and a whimsical, swooning spirit. "Tonight I Have to Leave It" comes from "Our Ill Wills," the band's sophomore effort.
