Bud Sugar!

BUD SUGAR - VIRAL (EP)Everyone gives a little tongue in cheek from time-to-time. The things you often thought people were joking about, which in reality are quite serious. Bud Sugar are that band; they are the unconventional future of the music world.

Their previous EP, VIBE, was a stand-alone-statement, a big happy middle finger to those dividing both people & genre expectations. A release which got national attention from the likes of BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson, even making national news headlines having performed at London’s pro-refugee demonstration. Lines such as “Shudup, Shudup, you should up your silence, you are the breed of fiend keeping us divided” chanted by frontman Bacary Bax echo over rhythms of excitement.

Some talk of an afro, up-beat skank. Others claim, ska but not quite ska. Certainly the high speed, manic ukulele and drum machine are key components, you could call it Afro pop with a northern dialect. Summery, high octane vibes makes for a galvanizing listening experience. Released on their independent label Vibe Tribe.This year has already seen Bud Sugar work closely with BBC Introducing, having covered extensive ground to build their brand (for example, supporting The Wailers with a sell-out show, headlining BBC Radio 1’s Academy & even cementing themselves in Fred Perry’s ’20 Hull Bands You Need to Hear’.) Bud Sugar consists of brothers Bax (vocals) & Lans (drums/vocals) with Dyl (guitar), Rob (bass) & Stan (ukulele).

Making regular appearances on BBC Introducing as well as being featured on their official website and on Tom Robinsons "Fresh on the Net" playlist. Also championed by Radio 1's Academy and BBC Introducing. A social media Might that is without a doubt a must see extravaganza of dizzying creativity and endless talent. Bud Sugar Live shows are an exciting, upbeat and colourful experience. Decorated in brightly coloured garments and painted faces adding another level of showmanship to live shows.
