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.
