The Sounds

The Sounds -- a Swedish group whose poppy, synthesizer-heavy music is unapologetically indebted to Blondie and Missing Persons -- feature the coed talents of vocalist Maja Ivarsson, keyboardist Jesper Anderberg, bassist Johan Bengtsson, drummer Fredrik Nilsson, and guitarist Felix Rodriguez. The new wave throwbacks first banded together in 1999 in Stockholm, where they recorded much of the debut album Living in America. The record charted at number four the week after its Swedish release in 2002, and an American release followed in May 2003. Dying to Say This to You appeared three years later, featuring a polished blend of anthemic, '80s-inspired rock and sex-crazed new wave that widened the band's audience abroad.

Touring obligations kept the Sounds busy until October 2007, at which time they returned to the studio with a string of producers, including Mark Saunders (who had recently worked with the Sounds' touring mates, Shiny Toy Guns), Fountains of Wayne founder Adam Schlesinger, and former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha. The Sounds also extricated themselves from their previous record contract, preferring to blaze their own path instead. Recording sessions for the group's third studio effort, Crossing the Rubicon, took place in Sweden, Los Angeles, and New York, and the resulting album was released in June 2009. The band spent the better part of 2009 touring the album, even nabbing a supporting slot with No Doubt. In 2011 the Sounds released their fourth studio effort, Something to Die For, featuring the single "Better Off Dead." Two years later, the Sounds returned with their fifth studio album, Weekend, which included the title track single and the song "Shake Shake Shake." ~ Andy Kellman & Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Cover girls are Leigh Lezark and Alexis Page.
they seem nice.
i think this nipple is pretty good. i like the undertones of nipple dashed with synthicizer
It's hard to listen with that nipple in my .... what was i saying?
If they didnt want to be stereotyped they shouldnt be showing things they dont want talked about,what would u say if it was a guy with see through pants on showing his slong? its called advertising lol.
Swedes rock! Uff da! Makes me want to run to the fridge get out the lingonberrie s to smother all over some meatballs..o r is it pancakes?
luminescent_ e m a c i a t i o n
LOL, troy, you are contributing to the unfair stereotype of males everywhere! Don't you want to fight for equal treatment of the sexes? ;)

-Arvis
Arvis, I agree, that cover totally makes me want to lick and squeeze the music when I know I should only be listening to it.
luminescent_ e m a c i a t i o n
That cover is annoying. All I see is that girl's nipple. Distracts from the music.

-Arvis
I am a fan of tony the beat,queen of apology,rock n roll,hope you're happy now, and don't want to hurt you. Dying to say this to you cover is actually a pic of a DJ and some other girl, its odd its even in the cover but hell I don't blame them.

Everyone who dislikes this music needs to listen to every song on every album and go see them live before they can judge. The Sounds are absolutely incredible and a group of VERY talented individuals. I never smiled more or danced my a** off more at any other show I've been to. So you guys can go suck it.
ughhh not that good??? ewwwww well they have potential but they're not that good.
ouch.... no talent...... . b a d . . . . . n o . . . . . r e a l l y bad!!! :(

Nice shirts. Dreadful otherwise.
i just saw them at the wiltern on nov. 16 with my bf. :))) simply amazing!!
I don't want to thumbs down them because I enjoy looking at the cover from time to time. Clever.
I just saw them in CONCERT!!! They are my FAVORITE FOREVER AND EVER!! The Sounds..no other band compares! So original and amazing!
spensoid
Boring. Good cover tho'.
I wonder what the two girls are saying to each other on the Dying To Say This To You cover.
the lyrics to 'hope you're happy now are wrong....
Nice music, great breasts.
I love their sound.

In 2003 I heard The Sounds on Satellite Radio, loved the old school style! I was transported back to 1984 on some soungs and 1977 on others. All with a great new style! Maja Invarsson's voice and I suppose with her Swedish to American lyrics really sounds cool. Ran out and bought there cd that day.
Being a 70's and 80's kid that still loves all new music, I had no problem becoming a fan of this very cool group! Hope The Sounds keep it going for many years to come.
I saw them live when they opened for No Doubt. So much energy, it was amazing!
I remember this as the song from the Geico caveman commercial.. . w i t h the motorcycles
catron
Great album, but better live if you can believe that!

I LOVE THIS BAND.....EVE R SONG IZ IN MY PLAYLIST.... L I S T E N TO THIS BAND EVERY DAY.....I LOVE THE SOUNDS...... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . T H E SOUNDS RULE!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Hey, this ant no twangy hick music! Where my twangy hick music! I wanna hear me some twangy Lush.

All that aside, I did these girls.
very fun music, definitely worth listening to, unless you are a hick looking for some twangy country music.
Some of their song are hit or miss with me, but overall I love their style and they've gotten better after each album they've released. My two favorites of theirs is Painted by Numbers and No One Sleeps when I'm Awake.
The recorded music is great but it PALES in comparison to their live act! Can you say totally deserving of EVERYTHING they've accomplished ? ? If you haven't checked them out live you owe it to yourself to do so. Don't decide if you love or hate them until you see them live...TRUST ME!
Apparently if you dislike the Sounds and voice your opinion you will be verbally hazed like Diane. People have different musical tastes, so what if she likes country?

Saw them live at One eyed Jack's in New Orleans. Best show I have ever seen.
