Together for 17 years, Swedish indie rock band The Sounds have been called the Blondie or Missing Persons of this time. Despite the part of the world they are from they have toured extensively in North America. As such they have earned many fans over here without really selling a ton of albums. Their live show is something to see and hear.
The five members of the band, Maja Ivarsson (vocals), Felix Rodriguez (guitar), Johan Bengtsson (bass), Jesper Anderberg (keyboards/guitar), and Fredrik Blond (drums), met when they were young and have stuck it out together through thick and thin. The band has released five studio albums with the most recent, Weekend, coming in 2013.
On stage is where the band truly comes to life. As such they are always touring. They have played over 500 shows in North America alone. Being part of festivals like Vans Warped Tour and touring with Foo Fighters, Panic! at the Disco and The Strokes have earned them plenty of fans on this continent.
