UPTIGHT SUGAR // BIO
Uptight Sugar is bringing a sweet new vibe to Cleveland’s music scene. With influences spanning 60s/70s Rock n' Roll, Psychedelia and Electro-Pop, their style and songwriting is reminiscent of classic Beatles, Pink Floyd, Roxy Music and Radiohead, with modern impressions of Tame Impala, Mutemath and Spoon. The result is an intricate mix of emotion and intention—both familiar and fresh.
The five-piece formed in 2013 as the now sought after cover band, The Sunrise Jones, rising to regional popularity with sold out shows throughout the Midwest and a dedicated fan base hooked on their incomparable renditions of every song ever loved.
Following their 2019 sophomore EP, I’m OK, You’re OK, the group is working on a new album slated for 2020 to accompany their latest single, Fell For You.
