Swedish new wave revivalists The Sounds blend anthemic guitar hooks and period-perfect synth lines to stunning effect, injecting their modern indie dance rock with just the right amount of '80s nostalgia. Frontwoman Maja Ivarsson may look like she's ready for the runway, but come showtime she means business, leading fans through pogo-inducing renditions of the band's most adrenalin-filled tracks. Hot off the heels of the late-2013 release of Weekend, The Sounds have fans eagerly awaiting their 2014 North American tour dates with Blondfire.
Formed in Sweden in 1998, The Sound made their full-length debut in 2002 with Living in America, becoming an overnight sensation in their home country and landing on the radar of critics in the US and UK. 2006 saw follow-up album Dying to Say This to You as well as main stage performances at the Vans Warped Tour, where the band dazzled fans and critics with their electrifying live sets. Celebrating ten years of recording and touring with the 2013 release of Weekend, the band once again hit the road for a headlining European tour before heading to North America in 2014.
