SCANDINAVIAN band The Sounds will be making a rare appearance north of the border when they play the Classic Grand.
The Swedish rockers, who hail from Helsingborg, are currently in the throes of a headlining tour of Europe and are playing two UK gigs during their schedule, with the other one taking place in London.
With blonde female Maja Ivarsson on vocals they have drawn comparisons with 80s legends Blondie.
The title track of their latest album, “Something to Die For,” and a second track “Yeah Yeah Yeah” were featured in the Hollywood movie Scream 4.
Guitarist Felix Rodriquez said: “Our shows are energy, just pure energy. We have the best fans and it really triggers us when we see our crowd go nuts.”
You can catch them live at the Jamaica Street venue on Sunday, February 5 – tickets are priced £11.
