    America, meet Serenades. Go ahead, shake hands. Use some anti bac and be polite. You won't regret it.

    So who are Serenades? Well, they are based in Stockholm, Sweden and are comprised of the dynamic duo of Adam Olenius (Shout Out Louds) and Markus Krunegard, two of Sweden's most highly-regarded songwriters. Serenades' debut album will be available next year thanks to Cherrytree Records.

    Can't wait? Well, in the meantime, you can indulge in a very special taste of what's to come via the band's first EP, titled Come Home, which will be released through all digital service providers and indie retail on Nov. 15. Come Home is the perfect introduction to a band whose name you'll be hearing throughout 2012.

    Singing together at all times to create a seamless, singular "third voice," Serenades create stunning, indie pop bliss on the Come Home EP. A free download of the song "Oceans," which will appear on Come Home, is available here.

    The track's accompanying video, made up entirely of oceanic stock footage and up now on theserenades.com, echoes the song's vibe of sonic submersion. Woozy, bleached out and full of sunny harmonies, "Oceans" is the perfect summer throwback to keep you warm throughout winter's chill. It's a dreamy, pop ode that'll make you feel like you're floating through waves, kissed by the sun. It transports you to another time and place. It's a mindfuck, in a good way! We love when music does that to us.

    Serenades will also be coming to America for their first stateside shows. The band has already played throughout Sweden in a number of ways – sometimes as a duo, sometimes as an eleven-piece – so these shows are already guaranteed to be the stuff of legends. Twosome, 11-piece, who needs boundaries and rules?

    The dates are:
    12/12 Los Angeles, CA @ Bardot (School Night!)
    12/13 Los Angeles, CA @ Bootleg
    12/15 Brooklyn, NY @ Knitting Factory
    12/16 New York, NY @ Mercury Lounge

    Did you like Serenades' "Oceans?"
