DMV-based five-piece Sunbathers just released an electric new track called “Sugar.” It’s an appropriate title for a song that goes down so sweet, largely in part due to falsetto harmonies, twinges of 8-bit like electronic moments and cinematic, pounding drums. “Sugar” is off of an upcoming followup to last year’s self-titled debut EP.
Here’s what Sunbathers had to say about the new track:
“Sugar” represents the clearest definition of our sound to date. Diving deeper into experimentation with both our diverse range of influences and newfound production abilities led us to a song we feel captures our current essence as a band. With more experience under our belts, our approach became much more precise – sometimes almost painstakingly so – fine-tuning drum tones, synth sounds, and vocal melodies. We afforded ourselves more time to pay attention to those minute details we may have rushed over in the past, allowing for a more intentional songwriting process. The resulting song is one we are proud to stand behind as a statement of who we are as a band, as well as where we intend to go.
