London fuzz rock trio Dama Scout won’t be releasing their debut EP — a self-titled joint — until November 10, but you can hear the band’s excellent new single, “Sugar,” right now.
Dama Scout explained the song in a press statement:
“We wrote ‘Sugar’ after re-watching [BBC television series] ‘Adam and Joe Go Tokyo,’ inspired by some the exhilaratingly chaotic bands on the show. It is a simple song with moments of bedlam interjected throughout. We enjoy juxtapositions like ‘sugary’ sweet melodies over slightly disconcerting music. ‘Sugar’ is our humble attempt to recreate the unusual mix of music crammed into a short space of time akin to the Japanese bands that inspired it.”
