Sugar Army

Trying to describe Sugar Army is both joyfully easy and nightmarishly hard. On the one hand you can talk in hyperbole and superlatives, and cover the essential description – that the band is quite unarguably beyond compare – but to try and describe their sound in detail is infinitely more difficult. As you listen to The Parallels Amongst Ourselves, you’ll come to understand just why this is the case, and that it is a very cool problem to have. Right from the spine-tingling opening of Parallels, it’s pretty obvious that this journey is one into unfamiliar territory…

New Medicine

"WOW, such an uproar over the name people!! Perhaps this resistance to change is bred from a place of genuine curiosity (because the unknown is our greatest fear, right?!?). So.... it’s my job in the next few paragraphs to alleviate your panic, here it goooooooes. First of all, stop freaking out. You’re being ridiculous. Thank you. Secondly, this name change was born because of some transitions in the members of this band.
