6th October 2017
Liverpool based indie rockers Sugarmen today share their punchy new single Push Button Age, taken from their debut album Local Freaks, out on the 6th October.
Championed by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Sugarmen sound something like an unholy blend of neo-slackers The Magic Gang and Spring King on speed. The band have spent the past few years travelling the globe, taking their infectiously manic energy and sonic angst everywhere from Seoul to SXSW, all whilst performing alongside Blur, Paul Weller and The Who. They tore through Reading and Leeds festivals, and are supporting The Jesus and Mary Chain in September, before headlining Sebright Arms on the 5th October.
The depth of the band’s record collection can be heard on Push Button Age and their influences spread from Merseybeat to New York’s post punk movement, to Glasgow’s Postcard Records, and on, all while retaining a sound that manages to sound quintessentially, urgently, current.
For their debut album Local Freaks, Sugarmen have taken their inspiration from Lou Reed and the streetwalking storytellers of the 70s to create a panoramic, polyphonic paean to Liverpool dedicated to “the mad, interesting people we’ve met along the way.”
