September 30, 2019 at 8:15 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Song With a Mission” by The Sounds.

The Sounds is a Swedish band that’s been around since 1998. Founded by Félix Rodríguez, Maja Ivarsson, Johan Bengtsson and Fredrik Blond in Helsingborg, they put out their first album in 2002, and four more following that. While they haven’t put out an album in a while, the band is still active and touring. “Sound With a Mission” is off their second album Dying to Say This to You which came out in 2006.
