      The Malmà Festival is one of MalmÒs most crowded weeks of the year. Mid-august arrives and people from all over the world come to experiance this week of festivities, food, culture and pure fun.

      All week long people walk up and down the downtown area to enjoy the outdoor concerts. One of them this year was by the Swedish indie-rock group “The Sounds”.

      Having heard a few of their songs and knowing that they were on tour with No Doubt this summer, I expected one hell of a show, and that’s exactly what I got. Maja Ivarsson, the lead singer, is a perfect example of a


      tough cookie. Being the only woman in the band, she sure knows how to stand out.

      The group played songs from their new album “Crossing the Rubicon” which got a positive respons from the crowd. In between the songs Maja talked to the audiance and kept the fire going. Despite her (gorgeous) high heels and (cute) dress, she ran around the stage, dancing and standing on top of speakers, making sure everyone was with her and the rest of the band.

      • strenghthen their vocal cords during a show, the members of The Sounds drank beer and wine instead and enjoyed an occasional cigarett here and there. Watching the huge monitors by the stage and seeing a close up of Maja Ivarsson infront of the mic with a cigarett in one hand and a beer in the other totally got the crowd going wild. She looked so cool and so confident. The entire band was at it, giving 100% during the entire time, showing how great of a band they are, and that they most certainly deserve the fame and fortune they have today.

        Through out the

        show they played the best songs of their albums, fast and slow, old and new. How ever, none of the songs could beat the energy that came from the band and the crowd as it did when they played their first hit single “Living in America”. There was not a single person in the crowd who didn’t sing or dance when they finished that great show with this song.

        Let’s just face it, this Swedish indie-rock group is a force to be reckoned with!
