A glistening sound of avant-garde youth; Manchester’s Sugarstone are ready to take off.
Whilst still dipping their toes in the water, the young band are donning the well polished sound of modern new wave rock alongside fellow prospecters 45ACIDBABIES and Calva Louise, but stage-side have become renowned for packing a punch whilst sharing stages in the company of rock heavyweights Kid Kapichi and punk-electro giants Strange Bones.
Forged from the ginnels of the north, their latest earworm ‘I Wanna Be Famous’ is an open-ended self reflection founded on the lyricism of vanity and dangers of fame – a showcase of Sugarstone’s lingering synth-guitar duels and double-vocal melodies alongside their prequel singles that leave you yearning for more.
In the forthcoming year Sugarstone hope to test their wings once more: they have a catalogue of material at the ready and await valuable studio time to make further headway; unfolding their true sound for all to see.
