Since all of the previous Songs for Singing have had male vocals, it was time for a change. For those who haven’t heard this band before, let me introduce to you The Sounds, an alternative rock group formed in Helsingborg, Sweden in 1999. The band consists of Maja Ivarsson (vocals), Felix Rodriguez (guitar), Johan Bengtsson (bass), Jesper Anderberg (keyboards) and Fredrik Nillson (drums). They have released three albums from 2002 to 2009: Living in America, Dying to Say This to You and Crossing The Rubicon respectively.
They are truly an amazing group but may not be for everyone; only one way to find out, turn up your sound!
