On May 9th I caught Swedish band We Are Serenades at Mercury Lounge.

We Are Serenades has two frontmen, Adam Olenius from Shout Out Louds and Markus Krunegard from Laakso. The band is touring to support its album that came out last month in the US.

“Daydreaming,” a softer song that emphasizes vocal harmony, and “Come Home,” surprisingly a Christmas song, were the two tracks that struck me as the best.

We Are Serenades played “Come Home” a bit faster live than on the record, and the increase in tempo made the song (especially the chorus) even catchier.

Album version of “Come Home”:
