City of the Sun

City of the Sun’s new track “Sugar” sounds as good as it tastes and it’s premiering exclusively on Billboard.

The New York City trio does what they do best -- use their insane musicianship to create evocative instrumental tracks that don't need lyrics to speak to the listener.

The band tells Billboard of the track, "This song came about during a time when we were touring a lot -- life on the road can get a little crazy. You are in a different place everyday and you meet so many people."

“Sugar” is a genre-bending jam that sounds like a rollercoaster, moving from more stripped down sections of the track focusing on strings to fuller moments when the entire band is playing. It’s a feel good track from start to finish.

City of the Sun is hitting the road on tour next month. Check out their dates and listen to “Sugar” below.
