The Sugars are Matt Bolton (vox/guitar), Alex Lewis (drums) and Anna Greenway (vox/bass guitar). They are busy touring the UK and Europe, gigging and promoting their debut album The Curse Of The Sugars.
Their latest single Black Friday was released to critical acclaim. From its machine-gun intro and tubular chimes it’s clear that Black Friday is no retro swing. Inspired by live performances from !!! and their own experiences on the road, ‘Black Friday’ is a dance record on The Sugars’ own terms. A pounding, energetic, relentless tale of quarrelling indecision, driven by a hypnotic bassline and metronomic kick-drum. Produced by Will Jackson of The Cribs & Pigeon Detectives fame, the trio have found the producer to make their records sound just as dark and thrilling as their live shows. The Curse of The Sugars’ is a brilliantly diverse collection, from wicked murder ballads to punk rock blues, via mariachi infused Latin, dramatic guitars and sleazy duets. Relentless touring with The Von Bondies, Nine Black Alps and Richard Hawley over the past year has enabled them to hone their live show completely. Now masters of their stage they have completed a long headline tour throughout the UK and will continue gigging the UK and Europe before heading back to the studio to record more songs.
