Bud Sugar!

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.

Dave Simpson - The Guardian

“Bud Sugar, a multiracial, Specials-type five-piece whose euphoric, socially conscious pop reflects modern Britain’s multicultural society.”

Dan Gooding - Executive Producer, Radio 1s Academy

“Bud Sugar hit you between the eyes and eardrums like a joyous juggernaut!.”
