Bristol rockers Sugar Horse have announced their long-awaited debut LP, “The Live Long After”. The latter will be out on August 27th via Small Pond Records. In recognition of the news, the band has also released “Fat Dracula”, the first single from this upcoming record.
Forming in 2015 as a trio in a flat in Bristol, Sugar Horse fully came into being in 2019 with the addition of Jake Healy on baritone guitar and keyboards. Seeking to break away from emerging trends in their scene, the band’s emphasis on simplicity and down-tempo heft belies an impressive sense of self-awareness and maturity. In their own words: “I think the best art is formed when it’s creators enforce rigid rules on themselves. Mondrian had geometry, Mark E Smith had his hatred for cigarette taxation and we have a complete disregard for urgency.”
