Fresh off the heels of their fourth full-length album, Something to Die For, The Sounds have been touring constantly and have proven themselves to be one of the hardest working indie bands in the world. Fronted by charismatic frontwoman Maja Iversson, the group has been leading a revival of ’80s New Wave music while at the same time crafting a unique identity and creating something new. Immediately at the beginning of their set Iversson lit a characteristic smoke and the band lit into their upbeat electronic-influenced indie rock. The show was set in the recently renovated Neptune Theatre, once a kitschy movie spot in the University District. The Neptune’s curved walls provide excellent acoustics and the funky ’70s decor and nautical accents are a great backdrop for a live show.
