The sounds - music

The Sounds is a Swedish band with echos of New Wave from such great pop as Kim Wilde, Missing Persons and Blondie.

Lead singer Maja Ivarsson might be known especially for her remix of Queen of Apologies with Fallout Boy's Patrick Stump. Maja also made Blender's hottest women in rock list.

The Sounds were formed in 1998 by classmates Felix Rodriguez, Maja Ivarsson, Johan Bengtsson and Fredrik Nilsson in Helsingborg, Sweden. The group met Jesper Anderberg, the youngest member, by chance at the Hultsfred Festival and was enlisted to play keyboards and guitar. The band's name was decided months later during a trip to London. Before becoming the lead singer of the band, Ivarsson had previously played electric guitar in other local bands.

There latest hit from their Crossing The Rubicon CD is No one Sleeps when I'm Awake that was on Vampire Diaries. The band has toured with No Doubt and supported Matt and Kim in Europe. Really, though, their music is amazingly hypnotic and well, you can love it years from now, too.
