Biography

Like its namesake, it’s easy to look forward to WEEKEND, the new album by Swedish indie rockers THE SOUNDS (Label:Arnioki Records/INgrooves; Release date: October 29, 2013). Sporting an urgency like that of a band fresh out of the womb, Weekend is the sound of a band rejuvenated and reborn. For The Sounds, they have been reborn in a sense… back to when they first started. ... Read more in Amazon's The Sounds Store

Editorial Reviews

By now, people know: When it comes to sassy, confident, feel-good rock n roll Sweden s The Sounds are the gold standard. Even as they ve evolved markedly since their 2002 breakthrough debut, Living In America, the Malmö-based quintet has remained true to their New Wave soul, delivering that perfect mix of sass and smarts, old and new, electric and electronic every time. Something To Die For is one hundred percent The Sounds. Not only did the band produce the album themselves, but they wrote and recorded it in their very own studio over much of 2010.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly something to die for... March 30, 2011
By C. Lin
Format:Audio CD
The long awaited fourth album and abit disappointed. As a huge fan of The Sounds, I love all their previous albums, I've seen them live and they KNOW how to perform! The first and second albums they had a good mix of rock and electronic, the third they went more rock which I personally thought was a good move...the fourth here they went more electronic... Lyrics wise...a song called the no no song and another yeah yeah yeah...?? The guys though have more vocal input in the songs which actually I like..

1. It's so Easy (3.5/5) An intro of repetitive beats and lyrics but it does get d head boppin

2. Dance with the Devil (4/5) Maja's voice sounds more electronic and which of the guys got their voice soundin like a robot?, lotsa big horns but it could be their next single..catchy

3. The No No Song (4/5) Actually a typical 'The Sounds' sound...catchy as usual

4. Better Off Dead (5/5)One of their singles, Maja's voice sounds more electronic

5. Diana (2/5) I don't really like the beat to this song..usually their songs have an 80's vibe to it but like with this one they went further back in time...my least fav. usually skippable in my book...

6. Something to Die For (5/5) The other single and title track...weird intro but it stands out...

7. Yeah Yeah Yeah (4/5)..It maybe is the second half of the no no song...

8. Won't Let Them Tear Us Apart (3/5)..it's definitely d filler song...it's just average to me nothing special...forgettable..I don't see them playin' this one in one of their concerts..

9. The Best of Me (4/5).."This life is gettin' the best of me"..Maja belts out...I like this one...supposed to be the 'serious' song on the album

10. Wish You Were Here (4/5)..

5.0 out of 5 stars Another awesome album from an awesome band May 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of The Sounds ever since I first saw them in 2003 and they never cease to amaze me with their awesome talent. I love all of their albums, but personally, I think this new album is one of their best. It's always nice to see a band progress musically and with Something To Die For, you can definitely see that. The lyrics, the beats, the vocals, everything is so well polished, so awesome, I can't help but dance around whenever I'm listening to it. I can see why The Sounds are proud of this one.

I had to break down to buy this one, havin gbeen a fan of theirs since 2003 saw them in concert and loved them. total I have seen them 3 times live and loved everything about them for their first 2 albums. I was so excited for their last album "Rubicon" but boy I was shocked, it was absolutely horrible pandering to Paramore and corporate rock fans. Finally they brought the beat back. The beats, the energy, the production, the synth, everything is amazing, and for being completely produced by The Sounds and recorded in their own studio, the production value is amazing.

This is new retro 80's dance electro new wave rock the way it should be. Their first album was a Bouncy punky punch to the face, and I loved it. The second album brought more electronics (which i loved) in the sound mix with their modern blend of the Clash meets Blondie meets Bananarama flair from the first album. Then the train wreck of Crossing the Rubicon.... I just can't go their, it is a horrid tepid bore of an album except for one song, Beatbox.

I heard The Sounds had a new album and I did not even listen to it, I could not even give it a try. Then finally after a recommendation from my local CD shop I broke down and bought it. I am happy. Best album since their first album. a perfect meld of their raw older sound from Living in America and Dying to Say This To You but amped up. The raw rockier sounds like Diana is amazing and energetic and the dancey tracks like Yeah Yeah Yeah are more bumpin and crisp and catchier then ever. YES, I may need to see them in concert for the forth time now that I know they are back with energy and FUN! Thank heavens they came back from the Rubicon and lets hope they dont ever cross it again ;)

If you're expecting to listen to songs like their debut album or the second "less appealing" album here you may look somewhere else because you won't find that in "Something to die for". First of all I must say that this record and the last one (Crossing the rubbicon-2009) have been THE BEST albums to date from this band. Although when "Crossing the rubbicon" was released I said that the album would've been a huge hit in the 80's but not so much in 2009. Well, this is not the case with "Something to die for". The fact that the band decided to produce this record themselves, walk away from a multimillionare record company to create their own label, and to distribute it with other indie labels IS obviously noticed in the music itself. The Sounds have always been one these bands that play for fun, to have a good time but, at the same time you notice that they take things seriously when it comes to the music they like to make eventhough Maja's lyrics and the sound they work with are not exactlyt a thinker. The point is that if this album had been released from the record company where they were before probably we would've killed this record by saying that they SOLD OUT here.

There are here some songs that sound more electronic than ever but still you can notice how the songs have this indie aura around them and even some moments where The Sounds try to go experimental. "Better off dead", "Something to die for", and "Won't let them tear us apart" are the examples for this statement.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bad The Sounds album still better than 90% of Indie bands.
I think this is the worst of the four albums. That being said it's still pretty damn good. The first two are the best and the 3rd has more memorable songs than this. Read more
