The Sounds - Yeah Yeah Yeah - Official Video
The Sounds recently released their video for “Yeah Yeah Yeah” from their album ‘Something To Die For’ on SideOneDummy Records. The video features clips of the band while on their North American leg of the ‘Something To Die For World Tour.’ The video was edited by Kevin J. Custer.
May we just add that Maja is probably the sexiest lead singer of any band on SideOneDummy aside from Dave King of Flogging Molly, of course.
Grave Maker (Victory Records) covers The Sounds?
Yup! A cover of The Sounds’ song “Riot” was the hidden track on Grave Maker’s album Ghosts Among Men.
Sometimes the best covers are the ones you’d never expect!

Swedish pop rock outfit The Sounds brought their infectious fusion of indie rock and electronica to a packed house at The Wiltern last Wednesday. Ever-energetic frontwoman Maja Ivarsson literally strutted her stuff in a short black dress and high heels, much to the delight of the males at the front of the house; her perfect-front woman repertoire included drinking beer between songs, smoking cigarettes during them, and crawling along the front of the stage on her hands and knees. She must get plenty of Red Bull.
Ivarsson maintained her energy throughout the whole 90 minute set, including during crowd favorites “Living In America” and “Painted By Numbers.” The rest of the performance was heavy on material culled from their latest long-player Something To Die For.
The night culminated with Maja inviting everyone on to the stage to join the band for the finalé, much to the shock of the venue security, with around 20 fans taking the opportunity to dance around aimlessly on stage for a few precious minutes, and take self portraits on their Blackberries and iPhones with Ivarsson.

While the Sounds are on the road promoting their new album, the biggest smiles and sing-a-longs would come during the songs of their 2006 release, Dying to Say This to You and the band does not seem to mind, they just want to please the fans. “We want to make you happy, you give us a reason, I live for you!” Maja declared to the audience at one point, the Sounds are a total fan appreciated band and that is why they will continue to work as hard as they possibly do.

Swedish quintet The Sounds has been together now for 13 years and has four studio albums to date. Time flies and it’s hard to believe that the band’s lead singer, Maja Ivarsson, was only 19 years-old when it all began. Now a grown woman at the age of 32, she’s spent the last decade touring the globe and hasn’t aged a day but has grown immensely as an artist and proven to be a great live performer.
We recently had the pleasure of talking to Maja before she took the stage at The Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. In our one on one with her, we look back at her career, talk about the latest album, her thoughts on America, recording, touring, and what the future holds.
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.
