ABOUT SUGARPULP:

Deb Chesterman met drummer Patrick Riley and guitarist Sam Allyn through the theatre community in their hometown of Chicago back in 2016. Although the trio has been playing together since that time, it wasn’t until meeting bassist Patrick Foley that their sound started to come to fruition. By early 2017 the lineup was complete and the band has been writing ever since. Honing in on their sound, touring the midwest, and recording new material as much as possible, Sugarpulp’s latest effort, Open Yr Mouth, is a testament to where they are at with their sound right now.

 

With the release of the Open Yr Mouth EP, Sugarpulp takes the best parts of some classic genres to breed a sound familiar, but their own.  Laced with driving progressions, an edgy but powerful vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative pop rock anthems.

The first single, “Machete”, pulls you in with its infectious hard-edged groove, followed by its quickly building choruses and its impending ability to create a tidal wave of energy at the right time. Most important is the songs ability to build and breathe as it plays on.

“The song references the metaphorical weapons that people carry around and our innate human ability to damage other people. It’s about the cycle of toxic relationships.” explains vocalist Deb Chesterman of the bands single.

Although the single does speak volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding of where Sugarpulp is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety.

“Through the process of writing ‘Machete’ (and this was the third reincarnation) we pinpointed as a group the words ‘Psych’, ‘Dance’, and ‘Rock’ as our guideposts for the work we are currently creating.” says the band of creating the EP.

Playing shows at venues like Empty Bottle, Schbuas, Chop Shop, Bling Pig in Ann Arbor, and opening for acts like Midnight Stroll, the band is certainly not new to spreading the music through live performance.

Open Yr Mouth is available for streaming and download on most major digital outlets and the band already has more shows lined up in support of the release.
