    No One Sleeps When I'm Awake
For a band whose history as a band spans a little over two decades, Swedish indie rockers THE SOUNDS sure don’t sound like it.
Resonating the excitement and dynamism of a band who are getting their very first hint of success, The Sounds are gearing up for the release of their sixth studio album, Things We Do For Love, a sweepingly majestic slice of Nordic indie rock that crackles and pops in all the right places.
Formed in 1998 in Sweden, The Sounds exploded on the alt-rock scene with their wildly lauded 2003 debut Living in America and its breakthrough singles “Seven Days a Week”, "Rock'n Roll", and the aptly named title track. Fronted by the striking Maja Ivarsson, The Sounds have continued to remain on the forefront of the music scene, releasing a handful of albums, each spawning single after single like “Tony the Beat”, "Painted By Numbers", "Song With A Mission", "No One Sleeps When I'm Awake", “Beatbox”, “Something to Die For”, “Shake Shake Shake”, “Thrill” and their latest "Things We Do For Love" from the same titled album out on June 12, 2020.
