The Sounds @ Union Transfer.

Swedish indie rockers The Sounds left their fans speechless and sweaty at the Union Transfer on Tuesday evening.

Each member was synchronized to formulate a raucous performance, the result of 16 years performing together as a band. Lead singer Maja Ivarsson seduced members of their audience at multiple times throughout the set, singling out characters for her to play dominatrix to for a few brief, yet scandalous seconds. Displaying limitless energy, Ivarsson went through her arsenal of stage moves including frequent roundhouse kicks and upper-cuts to the mic. Countless cigarettes were smoked by Ivarsson throughout the show, showing no lack of comfort while on stage.

Restless bodies ground into one another unabashedly as hits like “Tony the Beat” and “Shake Shake Shake” were performed with flawless and effortless execution.

The Sounds created a singular body of passionate, screaming and shameless dance-like-you’re-alone movements out of a ragtag audience of all ages.
