The Sounds

This week our Tuesdays Travels pick takes us to Malmo, Sweden. Sweden; the home of IKEA, ABBA and Absolut Vodka. Now we have one more thing to thank Sweden for, the incredible new wave infused rock by The Sounds.  Their music is described as indie rock/new wave but I think they can’t be categorized since they have a sound all on their own. The female fronted vocalist, Maja Ivarsson reminds me of a mix of Terri Nunn and Debbie Harry.  Their songs are energetic and fun and will have you moving and enjoying life within seconds of listening.

The Sounds is Maja Ivarsson on Vocals, Felix Rodriguez on Guitars/Vocals, Johan Bengtsson on Bass,
Jesper Anderberg on Keys/Guitar/Vocals and Fredrik Blond on Drums.


The Sounds recently released their album, “Weekend” on October 29th, 2013 and it is spectacular. They have described this album as a bit of a rebirth of the band.  Jesper Anderberg, keyboardist/guitarist explains, “Weekend is more of a back to basics album, I was primarily looking for a groove when I started writing this album – a groove based on five members who have been playing music together for a long time. We weren’t looking to over think the song writing, and especially wanted to make it sound like we just hit the switch on the amps and just started playing the songs.”  The album is great, a couple of my favorites are Take it the Wrong Way, Weekend, Outlaw, and the very fun Young and Wild reminds me of my love for the 90’s music. They have succeeded in taking ’90s inspired music and breathed a fresh new life to it and I am hooked! You can pick up your copy of “Weekend” on Itunes or Amazon.

The Sounds are busy touring in Europe and we hope they return back here to the States soon. Make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their tour info, details and latest news.
