SUGAR LOUISE

Baby (You Never Call Me Crazy) Single

 

 

Summer has swept across the northern hemisphere and Billy McBarbie of Norwegian tattooed sleaze glam jailbirds SLÖMBER has taken full advantage of the spring in his step by dancing down to the unemployment office and hooking up with a likeminded raggedy bunch of punk rebels for his new project SUGAR LOUISE.

 

‘Baby (You never call me crazy)’ is as bouncy pop as a punk song can be, its irresistible melody hooking the listener instantly and drawing you into the sheer fun of this Ramones meets Blink 182 rocker.

 

‘Wastin Summertime’ is punk reggae – more Rancid than The Clash – and an instant anthem for summertime fun and games.

 

Both songs show McBarbie’s songwriting skills and emphasise what we already knew from his SLÖMBER work – here is a star waiting to ascend.

 

Live, Sugar Louise bounce around the stage doling out candy, balloons, bubbles, sweet summer pop punk n’ roll and a bloody good time, and the two tracks here just gave me the taste for more - I can’t wait to hear their debut album, to be recorded late this year!

 

Available for download now from Amazon, itunes, CD baby etc
