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 Waiting In The Dark single, Sugarpulp takes the best parts of some classic genres to breed a sound familiar, but their own.  Engaging with an riff almost immediatly addicting, followed by by the tracks naturally ambient feel, and electro synth break down, there is never a dull moment with the band's come back track following last year's Open Yr Mouth EP release. 

Although the single does speak volumes for the band, to get a real understanding of where Sugarpulp is coming from, the previous EP should also be heard.

“Through the process of writing ‘Machete’ , our first single, 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.

Waiting In The Dark 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.
