Tony The Beat
'Tony The Beat' is an incredibly addictive, sexed up nu-disco treat from what will soon become your new favourite band - The Sounds. This punky new wave outfit sure knows how to make you a little hot under the collar. Their skin-tight, adrenaline spiked live shows are a true testament to this. Whilst the boys provide a solid sonic backdrop, blond, front woman Maja struts the stage like she owns it, climbs the drums, hangs off the speakers and flirts with old men and young girls alike.
Previously put out on limited 7", 'Tony The Beat' is now getting a full commercial release on March 5th. Part of the package is a spiky remix from the bands close friend Rex The Dog which was initially only made for their own benefit. Though that was before tastemakers like Annie Mac and Rob Da Bank got their mitts on it. Now a remix video (featuring a monkey, a keyboard playing dog and a banana fight) is doing the rounds on mp3 blogs whilst uber-trendy London haunts like Boombox are spinning early advance copies to a totally up for it crowd.
Produced by Jeff Saltzman (the man behind Killers' "Hot Fuss"), with additional production from Scratchie Records co-owners James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle) and Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne, Ivy) and mixer Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies, Hole), 'Dying to Say This to You' is jam packed with infectious hooks and choruses and has "radio smash" scribbled all over the front sleeve.
The Sounds are: Maja Ivarsson - Vocals, Felix Rodriguez - Guitars, Johan Bengtsson - Bass, Jesper Anderberg - Synthesizers & Fredrik Nilsson - Drums
